The companies said in a statement that as the metaverse evolves, it will transform the way people meet, work, learn, play and interact with one another within the virtual three-dimensional world. Epic Games and LEGO are committed to influencing the development of the Metaverse so that the next iteration of the internet is kid-friendly. It is noted that Epic Games has considerable experience in creating creative tools available to gamers and developers. At the same time, LEGO has been encouraging children to be creative for decades, creating exciting products that continue to be hugely popular around the world. It is believed that by joining forces, companies can create a safe metaverse for children.

Epic Games and LEGO have already developed three main principles that they will adhere to when creating virtual spaces for children. First of all, they intend to protect children’s right to play while considering the safety and welfare of young users. In addition, the developers intend to protect children’s privacy and put their interests first. In parallel, there are plans to give users access to tools to control their own digital experience.

“Kids love to play in the physical and digital worlds and easily switch between them. We believe that digital services have enormous potential for developing children’s creative and communication skills that will be useful throughout their lives.”says LEGO CEO Niels Christiansen.
