The massive virtual world based on Ernest Cline’s novel “Ready Player One,” and the subsequent Steven Spielberg-directed 2018 film, is trying to become real.

AI and metaverse technology and content company Futureverse has announced the formation of Readyverse Studios, a studio co-founded by Cline and film producer Dan Farah.

Readyverse Studios has also officially partnered with Warner Bros. Discovery to exclusively bring the “Ready Player One” franchise to the metaverse across web3.

Readyverse Studios will also maintain exclusive web3 rights to all future intellectual property created by Cline. The company expects to launch this year and in a statement says:

“Readyverse Studios is laying the groundwork to bring the promise of the open metaverse depicted in Cline’s ‘Ready Player One’ novel and the blockbuster film adaptation into a tangible reality: a multi-world, multi-IP, interoperable open metaverse experience for mass consumers.

The Readyverse will champion the principles of the open metaverse, which are provable digital ownership, community-owned infrastructure, decentralization, security and interoperability.”

“Ready Player One,” which starred Tye Sheridan, grossed $583 million at the global box office.
