Unity has announced it is teaming up with Insomniac Events to build a persistent metaverse.
Unity is one of the world’s leading platforms for creating and operating real-time 3D content. The new partnership with Insomniac Events will see the creation of a brand new, persistent metaverse world for its fans to gather and engage virtually for live music performances – regardless of their real physical location.

This partnership is the beginning of a long relationship that we believe will usher in a new level of interactive and immersive experiences within the world of live entertainment.”
“It is an honor to be partnered with an incredible company like Unity on this new journey,” says Pasquale Rotella, Founder, and CEO, Insomniac Events. “Our vision is to create a social experience in which everyone is a Headliner – where stories and music unique us in discovery, love, and a true sense of belonging.”
“Unity is helping us to create a world’s first experience for our community as we work together to deliver the next level of what the metaverse can be for entertainment and music,” continues Insomniac Events Founder Pasquale Rotella.
