Prior to this year’s conference in March 2016, GDC has released findings of their yearly State of the Industry Survey; according to which developers are inclined on making Virtual Reality compatible games.

The report reads that in 2015, only 7% of the developers were working on VR games – the number has now leapt to 16%. Moreover, only 6% of developers in 2015 wanted to incorporate virtual reality in their next game which now stands at 16%.

Aside from this, 38% of participants predicted that Augmented Reality headsets or Virtual Reality headsets will make it to 10% of U.S. households by 2020 which will increase to 86% by 2030. 9% of participants, however, predicted that it will never happen at all!

Coming to preferred platforms, 16% of developers working on VR games said that they are working on PC games – something which clearly states that Oculus Rift is the most popular virtual reality headset for these developers.

Finally, speaking about eSports, rising about 9% since the last year’s report, 88% of developers think that competitive games industry is a sustainable long-term business.
