Video games are one of the biggest selling products in the world today, and that is because they offer people a chance to escape into a virtual world. While playing video games gives the player a chance to forget about real life, it also gives them an opportunity to have a lot of fun. This is why the video game industry is exploding.
With so many upcoming video games targeting 2021, we can better understand how the industry will change over the next few years. The first step that we must take when looking at the future of gaming systems is to realize that technology and gaming systems are both changing at different rates. This means that we can expect to see some features disappear from upcoming video games sooner than others. Here are some examples:
Xbox And Nintendo Systems
Xbox and Nintendo systems will likely have somewhat similar platforms as well. However, there will likely be differences between the two. For example, the Xbox series will be available on more than just one platform, whereas the Nintendo Wii will be limited to just the Nintendo Wii platform. This means that video game companies are going to have to develop their games for multiple platforms. This will most likely impact the gaming experience, but it will help them make more money.
It may not seem like it, but the role-playing genre has been hit hard by the change in platforms. However, there are still quite a few RPGs that are coming out for Xbox one and ps4. One example of this would be Mass Effect 3. No release date has been given for the new game, but we can expect a release date for at least the next fiscal year.
Final Fantasy 14
The other major new RPG coming to consoles this March will be Final Fantasy 14. Fans of the series, especially the older ones, have been waiting for this game since the original release in 2021. No official release date has been given yet for the game, but it will most likely be out before the end of the fiscal year. No doubt more news about the game will emerge leading up to its release. In the meantime, fans can look to play the beta version of the game on the Xbox One and PC.
One more new video game release for the upcoming months is called Monster Hunter Generations. A release date hasn’t been given, but it will be released during July. The game is in pre-launch mode right now, so there isn’t much that we know about its story or gameplay mechanics. Most of what we do know is about the new monsters it will feature.
Far Cry 4
September will see the release of a new video game release on the PC called Far Cry 4. This is a spinoff of the popular Far Cry series of games. It will feature story elements that are similar to that of Far Cry 3. I’m pretty sure this one won’t be a smash, but it’s worth a look. I’m expecting it to be a hit amongst PC gamers, but it may not perform as well on Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 as some analysts expect.
A few more big-name game releases for the next few years include a new Pokemon game and a new Zelda game. These will arrive simultaneously on Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360. I wouldn’t be surprised if we start to see some more RPG announcements for the next few years. Stay tuned!
