Gaming Technology Predictions for 2020 and Beyond

With technology advancing at an astonishing rate, the video games industry could probably be the fastest growing sector on the planet right now. This broad sector encompasses everything from esports to live games and has now spread to mobile devices, such as phones and tablets, and Virtual Reality headsets. In recent years, cutting edge gaming technologies like the ones found at have enabled gamers to experience games in a fully immersive way. Read on to know about the gaming technology predictions for 2020 and beyond.

Hyper-immersive gameplay through Virtual Reality
As more and more developers started taking interest in Virtual Reality technology, it has changed the picture of video games by creating new immersive content. Recent developments in VR technology has helped developers in solving some tedious challenges associated with VR game products. The gaming industry has seen a massive transformation since the introduction of VR headsets in 2016. This has resulted in the increased demand for VR games and gamers are now excited to experience more immersive and realistic gameplay.

The market size of Virtual Reality in the video games industry is pacing with a fast growth rate. Today, the gaming experience offered by VR games is fascinating and fantastic in every sense and it will continue to improve in the near future. Thus, VR has the potential to be the next big thing in the gaming industry.

Open-source development
Open source development has become an essential element in the application development process. As it accelerates games development, reduces cost and promotes innovation, and over 50 per cent of an application’s code often comprises open source development. Today, many organizations and individuals contribute to open source projects that they themselves use. And the primary reason for this is that they want to make the game better.

Surprisingly, the gamer community has shown itself to be more than capable of making extensive modifications to existing games. With more and more gamers contributing to game development projects, it will be interesting to see where open-source development takes gaming in the coming years.

Gaming in the cloud
Cloud gaming uses a remote server to run games and streams them directly on the gamer’s device. The idea is that gamers will no longer need a gaming console or a powerful PC to play their favourite games. Cloud gaming is quite similar to streaming videos. Essentially, all the heavy lifting is done by the server and your control actions are sent over the network to the cloud gaming server. In simple words, it is a streaming video service, but interactive.

In the coming years, this technology will probably make video games cheaper and more accessible to those who don’t have a powerful computer or PC.

The return of handheld consoles
With the advent of immobile gaming consoles, such as Xbox and PlayStation, handheld consoles seemed to have died out in the early 2000s. However, the success of Nintendo Switch indicates that many people still love to play video games on a dedicated gaming device, rather than playing on a mobile phone or tablet. Therefore, handheld consoles could be an important part of gaming technology in 2020 and beyond.
