Unlikely, a pioneer in the online world
Since 2012, Improbable has been providing solutions to video game companies so they can accommodate a larger number of players simultaneously. But despite significant financial support, as evidenced by its fundraising $ 502 million during 2017Undoubtedly had the disadvantage of being present too early in the sector.
In fact, the company has experienced several setbacks, between the failure of several games and a significant turnover on a par with the company’s managers. Narula, the current CEO, admits his start was uncertain, ” its operation was more complicated than necessary “, he declared.
But Unlikely has evolved, and so have virtual worlds. That’s why, last year, Improbable revealed ” Morpheus », A technological solution that makes it possible to gather more than 10,000 people simultaneously in a virtual world.
ONE technological prowess in comparison to recognized virtual worldssuch as Fortnite, World of Warcraft or Call of Duty: Warzone, games focused on multiplayer with a number of players much lower than what Morpheus allows.
In addition, metavers, blockchain and NFTs are growing in popularity, the figures for 2021 testify to this. : $ 25 billion in volume for NFTs, or the $ 15,000 billion of cryptocurrencies that passed through the platforms during the same year.
We could also quote the game The Sandbox and its partnerships with leaders in their field, such as Gucci, HSBC, Warner Music or more recently the French company Ledger. It therefore seems that Improbable is well on its way to rides on the wave of metavers success thanks to M²its new interoperability technology.
