When CCP Games needed someone to help stage a gigantic real-time space battle with 14,000 ships, it turned to Hadean. And that’s one reason why the United Kingdom startup has raised $30 million.

London-based Hadean hopes to create the infrastructure for the metaverse, and it already supports virtual worlds in immersive entertainment and enterprise digital twins. (We’re going to discuss the topic of the real-time metaverse at our GamesBeat Summit Next 2022 event on October 25-26 in San Francisco).

Hadean is creating distributed, spatial and scalable computing for web 3.0 and the metaverse. The distributed cloud platform is a software layer that enables scalability, security, and interoperability, driving the metaverse and digital immersive experiences for enterprise, commercial, gaming and government customers.

One of the challenges now is that advances in chips and computing performance aren’t going to come easily, now that Moore’s Law has slowed down. Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia, said that Moore’s Law and the economic benefits that come from chip miniaturization are basically dead — just in time for the metaverse to arrive.
