What will game design look like in the future? Is the entire industry going to be on cloud? Or are there too many obstacles to overcome?
Now is an exciting time to build your career in game design and development. The University of Bolton’s MA Games Development course will help you gain advanced game development techniques and extend your knowledge of the games business, while touching on the latest trends.
This includes the rise of gaming on cloud, said to be the future of the industry. But according to TechCrunch, cloud gaming platforms were one of “2020’s most overhyped trends” and there’s a lot of work to be done yet.
Whatever the case may be, gaming is the largest and most lucrative entertainment industry, and there’s never been a better time to upskill. Here’s a look at how game design is changing and why cloud is an area to watch.
More affordable gaming
The most obvious benefit of cloud gaming is being able to play your favourite games at a much lower cost. Without the need to fork out for the latest gaming system, many games will become more accessible, dramatically growing the gaming network.
There’s also more flexibility in choosing how you want to pay. Rather than paying for individual titles, it’s possible to pay a subscription fee to access a whole selection of games for less.
This will make gaming highly inclusive for people of all ages and budgets, further bolstering the industry and creating a more connected experience.
