“It’s a poorly designed video game today,” Spencer said. “Building a metaverse like a living room is not the way I want to spend my time. What I see in the metaverse is that we are at an early stage and this is going to evolve.”

Spencer’s comments could be a dig at Meta’s efforts to build the metaverse, which was It was criticized for poor graphics earlier this year. The metaverse, in general, is a virtual world that Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes is the next stage of the Internet.
