[eMarketer] The future of video games will be streaming
According to video game developers, streaming will grow the most of any gaming platform by 2025, cited by 40% of those surveyed.
Another 24% said mobile will grow the most, while fewer pointed to the metaverse or consoles. Versatility and connectivity will pave the future of gaming, making streaming and mobile pretty good bets.
eMarketer opines that greater 5G infrastructure and adoption will bring high-definition graphics, fast downloads, and advanced interactive elements to these platforms—in some cases, without the need for pricey hardware like consoles or headsets.
