Ready Player One, the acclaimed 2011 science fiction novel, is set to become a key player in a multi-IP open metaverse initiative.
Ernest Cline, the visionary behind Ready Player One, and producer Dan Farah have unveiled a strategic partnership with metaverse company Futureverse.
According to a thread post shared on January 4 on X (Twitter) by Futureverse, this collaboration will materialize as “Readyverse Studios.”
Positioned as a dynamic interactive platform, Readyverse Studios aims to offer a range of interconnected digital experiences within a multi-IP interoperable open metaverse.
Farah highlighted Readyverse Studios’ role as a metaverse platform for Hollywood studios and brands to tap into their creativity, fostering new revenue streams. Simultaneously, it promises consumers new and more immersive experiences.
The inaugural entry into the metaverse is Ready Player One, made possible through a collaboration with Warner Bros Discovery. This venture represents the first significant agreement secured by Readyverse Studios.
Drawing inspiration from Cline’s novel, the new open metaverse is poised to immerse participants in a virtual-reality universe reminiscent of the OASIS simulation, offering an escape from the real world.
However, Ready Player One is just the starting point. In the X thread, Futureverse declared that Readyverse Studios has secured exclusive Web3 rights to all upcoming IPs from Ernest Cline, with additional brands and franchises to be announced soon.
