Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta has poured over $10 billion into metaverse research this year alone. What is he spending on, and what does he hope to accomplish in building virtual worlds?

He offered some clues last week on The Joe Rogan Experience, which is by some metrics the most listened-to podcast in the world. The episode, which sprawled almost three hours, made headlines for Zuckerberg’s comments about his hellish morning routine and Hunter Biden’s laptop. But the interview also offered insight into his approach toward his tenuous, oft-ridiculed metaverse empire-building.

A new VR headset will arrive in October.

Meta’s newest virtual reality headset, a successor to the Meta Quest 2, will arrive in October, Zuckerberg announced. It will be the company’s first major VR launch since the name change from Facebook to Meta last fall.
