Moving from a set of independent virtual worlds to an integrated network of 3D virtual worlds or
Metaverse rests on progress in four areas: immersive realism, ubiquity of access and identity, interoperability, and scalability. For each area, the current status and needed developments to achieve
a functional Metaverse are described. Factors that support the formation of a viable Metaverse,
such as institutional and popular interest and on-going improvements in hardware performance,
and factors that constrain the achievement of this goal, including limits in computational methods
and unrealized collaboration among virtual world stakeholders and developers, are also considered.
