Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ubisoft CEO Says Next Console Generation Will Be The Last

 

How do you feel about cloud-based gaming?

Assuming the next console generation is 2020, the "next" console generation would be due around 2027. By then, with the roll out of ultra low latency 5G, Ubisoft may well be right. I'm sure that the game developers "want" them to be right.

But they'll likely be wrong. Technology at that caliber can't possibly be affordable even by then (inflation's a bitch).

Not to mention it is still high latency anyway.

Besides, there will still be new technologies on the way that we could implement into gaming consoles. The future isn't written in stone.

Oh for sure, there is a big focus on Ray Tracing at the moment... And A.I.
Next gen will likely see the biggest leap on the CPU side.

I do think next gen will be a little longer than this console generation though, mostly because we will probably be stuck at 10nm/7nm for a fairly long time.

Oh yeah, that's a thing I never heard before ... *pff*

So you agree with him?

They always say this. No, next will be VR takeover and maybe one or two other types of quirky new gameplay options. VR tech will keep advancing and becoming more accessible for at least the next two or three generations.

 

Oh boy... some people just can't get the message. Let me put it like this: The PS Vita and the Wii U are more popular than PS VR. VR as a contraption in your head will NEVER work. VR may have potencial with hologram projectors, but spare me the screen on my face. We are very far from any VR takeover until those projectors can be made affordable.
