The current metaverse project will prioritize sustainability. BBC is teaming up with Offsetra and Nori to make that possible. In addition, WeForest will contribute to global reforestation efforts.
This metaverse experience is scheduled to debut within the latter part of this year, with additional information to be revealed in the coming months.
Reality+ x BBC Studios
BBC Studios will leverage Reality+‘s state-of-the-art technology platform, enabling it to integrate into The Sandbox seamlessly. This will be easy considering that Reality+ previously partnered with the studio to create the Doctor Who: Worlds Apart digital trading card game.
Nicki Sheard, the President of Brands & Licensing at BBC Studios, expressed eagerness and high hopes for the success of the partnership. He noted that the metaverse is changing how we enjoy entertainment and is looking forward to seeing how Top Gear and Doctor Who will engage with fans within this realm.
The BBC’s partnership with The Sandbox will enable Doctor Who and Top Gear fans to enjoy immersive experiences with their favourite characters. The iconic BBC franchises also plan to create a vibrant community and allow fans to engage in exciting and creative ways.
