The gaming industry has been in a continuous evolution since its inception, various consoles have improved their technology and productivity with every next generation. It is considered to be one of the fastest evolving industries on the planet. As you may know that we are on the brink of stepping ahead into the next generation consoles, the CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot is somewhat of a different opinion, according to him the next generation will perhaps be the last generation of home consoles, as it shall be replaced by high-quality Multi Device Streaming Services.
In an interview, Guillemot shared his understanding when asked about the future of gaming consoles. He is of the belief that the next generation consoles will be the last. According to him, there is a certain pattern in the hardware updates, which will soon be replaced by high-quality Multi Device Streaming Services.
“I think we will see another generation, but there is a good chance that step-by-step we will see less and less hardware. With time, I think streaming will become more accessible to many players and make it not necessary to have big hardware at home. There will be one more console generation and then after that, we will be streaming, all of us.”
Specifically talking about the next console generation to perhaps be the last one he said,
“There will be one more console generation and then after that, we will be streaming, all of us.”
Guillemot said that there are so many companies that are already experimenting with different technologies, which allow users to play high-end games on basic laptops and other similar devices. He gave an example of Nvidia working on making such technology possible, while Valve which already owns the largest online PC gaming store in the world.
