Readyverse Studios: Creating a Digital Universe

Ernest Cline, known for writing Ready Player One, and Dan Farah, the producer of the Steven Spielberg film adaptation, have teamed up with Futureverse, an artificial intelligence (AI) and metaverse company, to create a digital universe inspired by the book.

Collaborating with Futureverse’s Shara Senderoff and Aaron McDonald, Cline and Farah are co-founding Readyverse Studios, a company set to launch a metaverse called “Readyverse.” They envision it as a collection of interconnected digital experiences. The partnership between Readyverse Studios and Warner Bros. Discovery, announced on X (formerly Twitter), aims to bring the Ready Player One franchise exclusively to the metaverse and Web3. Additionally, Readyverse secures exclusive Web3 rights to all forthcoming intellectual property (IP) from Cline.

Farah revealed in an interview with Hollywood Reporter that discussions have commenced with major studios and IP rights holders, emphasizing their focus on collaborations within Readyverse.

Futureverse’s announcement highlights the Readyverse’s commitment to the principles of the open metaverse, encompassing aspects like interoperability, security, decentralization, community-owned infrastructure, and verifiable digital ownership. These principles align with the goals of the Open Metaverse Alliance, formed in 2022 by Web3 platforms such as Animoca Brands, Dapper Labs, Decentraland, and The Sandbox. The Alliance strives to maintain values like transparency, inclusivity, decentralization, and democratization within the metaverse.

During the Korean Blockchain Week 2022, Everyrealm CEO Janine Yorio noted that while Ready Player One provided a glimpse into metaverse life, its portrayal was considered unrealistic by some. Yorio highlighted the current trend of developing metaverses primarily for desktop experiences rather than exclusively in virtual reality, as depicted in the movie.
