Building a persistent, open and interoperable #virtualworld 

 Through gamified experiences to reach broad audiences remains on top of brand’s agenda.
The Walt Disney Company investment of $1.5B in Epic Games is an iconic recent deal in that perspective.

While being a world-class games experience, Disney’s intend is to leverage Fortnite as the new persistent universe to offer a multitude of opportunities for #consumers to play, watch, shop and engage with content, characters and stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Avatar and more.

That’s definitively a significant move toward bringing more 3D and immersive experiences in the entertainment industry.
