Looking Glass also collects a 10% royalty in perpetuity on all aftermarket sales of HoK Genesis memberships.
Additionally, the company has announced that HoK plans to launch its next-generation proprietary metaverse in the near future, which is codenamed Project Origin and carries the tagline “The Art of Future Living”.
