The metaverse is still a concern for many companies. As more and more companies add up to this trend, today it has been revealed that this market will have two new competitors: Lego and Epic Games. Through a statement, These two companies have committed to creating a safe metavera for children.
In accordance with the one mentioned by the companies, this new relationship between Lego and Epic Games will not only give them the opportunity to enter the metavess , but they also have planned to do so with a focus on creating a safe space for children. This was what was mentioned about it:
"The Lego and Epic Games group announced today that they are entering a long-term association to shape the future of the metaverse to be safe and fun for children and families. The two companies will join to create an immersive, creatively inspiring and attractive digital experience so that children of all ages enjoy together.
Family digital experience will provide children with access to tools that will train them to become safe creators and provide incredible game opportunities in a safe and positive space.
The LEGO and EPIC GAMES group agreed on three principles that will ensure that the digital spaces they develop, provide attractive and safe game opportunities:
-Protect the right of children to play making safety and wellbeing a priority.
-Prote you the privacy of children, putting their best interests.
-Empode to children and adults with tools that give them control over their digital experience. "
While the details are still a mystery, This sounds very similar to Roblox, which is already considered a metaverse for children by many people . However, considering the exploitation accusations to minors who have arisen against this platform in recent years, it seems that Lego and Epic Games have an arduous task against them to prevent this type of behavior to replicate in their proposal.
Next to this , the description that is offered sounds that an online LEGO game is surely in development , which would give children the tools to create their own space in this metaverse. There are still details that need to be clarified, but it is good to see that these companies are focused on the role they will have minors in metaverse.

Although the idea of procuring children in metaverse sounds like something good, this raises a number of issues that have not been clarified. To begin, what kind of platforms will give you access to minors, and how exactly the roblox problems will be avoided that they are repeated. There is still a lot that is still in doubt, and I do not see a concrete future for these plans.
