What is The Future for Online Gaming?

At the moment online gaming is now considered the only way to play games. Anyone that has a PC, console, or mobile device used to play games is either playing a game streamed via the internet or playing a game on a device that is hooked up to the internet for multi-player gaming. Overall, the internet is the new place for any kind of gaming. However, what do you think the future holds for online gaming?
There are several new concepts coming into play that could change the way we play games online.

Virtual Reality
This is probably the most obvious online gaming concept that anyone has predicted for the future. Nonetheless, we have not seen this side of online gaming develop at all. In fact, I can’t think of a Virtual Reality game that has really kicked off at all. As a result, I did some research.
Now PlayStation seems to have been giving VR technology a good go. As I ditched my PlayStation for PC gaming, I have not kept up to speed with the latest developments. During my research though, I found a great small article that gives you the lowdown on how VR games are coming through.
Have a read here as this article has been written by someone with deep knowledge of the VR industry and its current developments. virtual reality game.

Blockchain Gaming
This is an area where I expect online gaming to bubble and burst through into the marketplace. Right now the benefits of blockchain gaming are not overly clear. The architecture is really set up to give people a more secure platform. For online gaming, it is not exactly a huge deal as rarely do people get hacked into playing online games. However, the fact remains that hacking does exist within the online gaming industry, so the blockchain could serve a purpose here.
Other suggestions have been how to stall the rising price of games at the moment. There are blockchain solutions out there that have suggested that the gaming developer and the players can hook up directly cutting out the middleman. This would mean sending the game directly to the user from the developer reducing the cost of gaming for the buyer.

Another feature of blockchain gaming is that the way it is developed means that players will not be able to use cheats or hacks. Many games are hacked and codes connect to other strings of code that the hacker has been able to manipulate. By applying the hack, the player can then gain an unfair advantage. This is obviously quite frustrating for those that are playing multi-player games online fairly. A person using a cheat can just come along and use the hack to gain better results, and those that play fairly will have to suffer.
There are also a host of new games coming out on the blockchain. We are not really sure how these games will operate and what the advantages are to using them on the blockchain. We will just have to wait and see.

MOBA Gaming
With big bucks being ploughed into some of the top MOBA games for those that can become pros, the MOBA gaming industry is on fire. An increasing number of people are spending money on their fav MOBA game more than ever before.

There are also so many other games where pro players are winning large amounts of cash. FIFA Football and Gran Turismo are just 2 games that spring to mind immediately. Other games, such as Drone games, are leading to the recruitment of Drone pilots in the US army
Overall, it is very interesting when you look at the way online gaming is developing. It has become a global trend that is rising rapidly and shows no sign of slowing down. Keep your eyes peeled as we look for more updates on the future of online gaming.
