VRChat or Rec Room will be acquired or partner with a major tech company in 2022.
Wrong! Though I did say to someone at Meta, “Why don’t you all just give up with Horizon and buy Rec Room?” To which they said something to the effect of, “The government would jump down our throats!”
There will be a major scandal or controversy around one of the blockchain/NFT-oriented Metaverse platforms in 2022.
Yes. I’m tempted to say the whole year of 2022 was nothing but controversies!
Linden Lab spinoff startup Tilia to announce major funding or partnership in 2022.
Yes, two actually: Unity in late January and JP Morgan in October.
Valve/Steam will announce its own Metaverse product in 2022.
Another wrong! Though I still can’t believe I’m wrong there.
So grading myself on a curve, that looks like 6 out of 8 correct. So say a solid B. Let’s see how I do in 2023.
