The Xbox could serve as a portal to virtual worlds

Microsoft’s ambitions in the metaverse field go far beyond functions for Teams or Windows.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella pointed out that the company absolutely plans to create a gaming metaverse, which will have complete 3D worlds and would be used via Xbox consoles.

No additional details are offered, so we do not know when this will be implemented, which software will be included, but we know that it is in preparation.

It remains to be seen what the aforementioned gaming “metaverse” experience will look like.

Nadela points out that games, such as Halo, Minecraft, or Flight Simulator, already represent a simplified 2D metaverse.

Microsoft has previously experimented with projects that can be characterized as metaverses, and among them is Minecraft for HoloLens or Minecraft Earth.
