Why the Games Industry in 2020 Will Succeed – To say that 2020 has started off shakily would be a vast understatement, though things will soon return to normal and industries will continue to thrive.
One industry that has been on top for many decades now is the gaming industry, and things look set to continue that way for the foreseeable future.
Ever since the days of Pong, Frogger, Space Invaders, Pac Man and so on, we have been hooked on video games. With games consoles now more advanced than ever before and with more games to play than ever before, it would be safe to say that the games industry isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
But why is 2020 looking set to be the year of the video game? Well, that’s what we’re going to try to find out right now.
Here are several reasons why the games industry in 2020 will do better than ever.
People are spending more time indoors
Okay, whilst we know that things will inevitably return to normal sooner rather than later, the fact of the matter is that right now people are spending more time indoors.
To help pass the time and to keep themselves entertained, they’re either purchasing new video games or playing older ones again and are falling in love with gaming all over again.
Video games right now are playing a huge part in helping to keep people’s spirits high and helping them to pass the time and have fun.
Online gaming will continue to expand
Nowadays we’re finding that more and more video games have online connectivity and can be played and enjoyed online.
People are playing games online through various sites and are socialising with their friends in the process and that is only going to continue.
With around 80% of the entire world now able to access high speed internet, we can expect to see more and more games that can be played online or played exclusively online.
There are some HUGE games coming
Now, assuming that none of them are postponed or pushed back, 2020 looks set to be huge year for video games.
There are some seriously huge games set to drop later this year, including titles such as:
The Last of Us Part 2
Resident Evil 3 reboot
Final Fantasy VII reboot
Dying Light 2
And many more…
Again, assuming there are no push backs or postponements, we should also see two brand new consoles hitting the market.
As you probably know, there are two consoles that dominate the games industry and they are Xbox and PlayStation.
With the Xbox Series X and PS5 looking likely to drop towards the end of the year, likely just before December so that they can cash in over the festive period, gamers are very excited.
There haven’t been too many announcements regarding what we can expect from the consoles, but with processing power being emphasised several times, gamers are in for a real treat when the consoles drop.
