On the company’s fourth-quarter results call, Disney CEO Bob Chapek also hinted that the entertainment conglomerate might build its metaverse.

“Our efforts thus far are only a foreshadowing of a time when we’ll be able to integrate the real and also digital worlds even more closely, allowing for narrative without borders in our own Disney metaverse,” Chapek added.

“Also, we’re excited to provide consumers with unrivaled opportunity to enjoy everything Disney has to offer across all of our products and platforms, no matter where they are.”

Furthermore, Microsoft is developing a metaverse for office workers with its Teams platform.

Mesh for Teams, a new feature, will allow anybody to join meetings in the metaverse via cellphones, laptops, and mixed-reality headsets.
