The LEGO Group and Epic Games have announced a long-term partnership to create a metaverse that is safe and fun for kids and families. The companies promised to create “an immersive, creatively inspiring and engaging digital experience for kids of all ages to enjoy together.”
As the metaverse evolves, it changes the way people communicate, play, work, learn, and interact in a virtual 3D world. Epic Games has a track record of creating creative tools and engaging worlds that are open and accessible to players and developers around the world. Epic is committed to empowering developers to create age-appropriate online games and in 2020 acquired SuperAwesome, a company that has developed technology designed to enable safe digital interactions with children under 16.
For 90 years, the LEGO Group has inspired generations of children with the endless creative possibilities of the LEGO bricks that remain the backbone of its business. The company is a leader in defining safe digital play for kids.
The LEGO Group and Epic Games have agreed on three principles to ensure that new digital spaces provide safe, fun play experiences:
- Protect children’s right to play by making safety and well-being a priority;
- Protect the privacy of children by putting their best interests first;
- To provide children and adults with the tools to empower them to manage their digital experiences.

The company’s revenue rose 2% to $52.7 billion, while net income fell 12% to $16.4 billion.

Also not the best way to feel in the last quarter and the gaming division of the company. In general, the Xbox division was marked by a decrease in revenue. Game sales fell by 13%, hardware sales fell by the same amount, that is, primarily consoles, and revenue from services and services decreased by 12%.
At the same time, Microsoft notes the further growth of the Game Pass service, but, as always, does not name the number of users and revenue.
