Be patient, there won’t be a Metaverse anytime soon

We need to be very patient. A lot of companies are doing experiments along these lines. We have to realize it’s going to take many attempts before we find the key combination of elements that makes it all work. In two years, when everybody’s downloaded different versions of the Metaverse from different companies and found that they all suck, I wouldn’t give up at that point. We need to continue to look for the magic. — Tim Sweeney, Epic Games, Source
