Oh, interesting! I did not know about this platform at all.

I don't see why the multiverse couldn't "emerge" from a game, even a fighting one. A lot of MMOs, even mobile ones, are effectively virtual worlds with various specialized addons. If you look at something like, say, Toram Online, players/users spend a enormous amount of time socializing in the persistent, shared world; it'd work just fine as a platform for a lot of company/departmental meetings, just requires a quite modest smartphone and a minimal amount of bandwidth. It's got avatar customization, clothing, emotes... the dev were even talking about making the currency crypto/blockchain-backed at one point, but I'm not sure what ever came of that. Point being, if they wanted to they could have a nice head start on a viable and successful multiverse engine. So could Free Fire, from the sounds of it.

I strongly doubt these claims

I was skeptical at first too but the publicly available info is pretty impressive. There's over 1 billion downloads of the main game on Google Play alone:
