Lego and Fortnite creators Epic Games have entered a partnership to ensure the safety of children in the metaverse, creating a safe space for them online. Details on the child-friendly space haven't been revealed, though we assume it could mean an exclusive Lego title from Epic Games.
While we don’t know the finer things of this partnership between Lego and Epic Games, the two companies did outline three important things that will be a major part of this deal courtesy of Eurogamer:
- Protect children’s right to play by making safety and wellbeing a priority.
- Safeguard children’s privacy by putting their best interests first.
- Empower children and adults with tools that give them control over their digital experience.

Both companies also released a joint statement on what they plan to achieve:
“The family-friendly digital experience will give kids access to tools that will empower them to become confident creators and deliver amazing play opportunities in a safe and positive space."
Judging from the use of “tools” and “creators,” it looks like Lego and Epic Games could be planning to make a similar experience to Roblox. For those unaware, Roblox has been a massive hit with content creators young and old alike, with constant experiences still being created to this day.
No word on when we’ll be seeing this title from Lego and Epic Games, though we assume that it will be big since they agreed to a long-term partnership. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC
