The game industry is a rapidly evolving place that takes the best from all other entertainment forms and presents it all in one great, interactive format that everyone can enjoy. But the gaming industry has a lot more left up its sleep. As we move in the new roaring twenties, let’s see what the future of gaming has in store in the early 2020s.
Another Round Of The Sony Vs. Microsoft War
2020 will see both the new Xbox and PlayStation consoles hit the market. We’ve seen this battle played out several times in the past, and, while some gamers may cross ranks and buy both consoles, many will stay with their own camp and join the next generation. With the promise of backward compatibility across previous generational titles, it is likely that you would be inclined to want to stay loyal to one company or the other. With increased processing power available on both machines, and with the potential for 8K graphics, there promises to be so much more potential for games to really level up in the future. With double the graphics power and four times the processing power of the Xbox One X, the new Xbox will blow its predecessor out of the water.
Will Google Stadia Shake Things Up?
The streaming industry has really changed the way that people view and enjoy TV and cinema. It has really disrupted the entire media industry. TV is now produced to be streamed and consumed in a whole new way. So, it follows that cloud-based gaming is the next step.
The Google Stadia streaming service provides 4K gaming streamed to your device and screen, although you need a pretty meaty internet connection to be able to access the full potential of this service at the moment.
Providing the titles are right, cloud-based games streaming might well be the next big thing.
Machine Learning Will Learn Your Gaming Style
Technology is making itself smarter all of the time. And, with the ability for games to learn all about the way that you personally game, you will find that gaming experiences will alter based on your existing skill level.
While we are only just seeing the seed of this technology finding its way into our video games at the moment, within the next few years it is highly likely that games will adapt and evolve around the player’s technical abilities, playing style, and techniques, providing a personalized gaming experience for whoever is at the controls.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
Virtual reality and augmented reality are two major areas of gaming innovation. They are definitely areas that have been pushed hard in the last few years with the likes of Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest in the VR world, but the future will see both VR and AR merging to create some unreal gaming experiences.
With so much interest in VR, the natural progression would see us mixing up realities in the most mind-bending ways imaginable.
