Future of Gaming in India 2020


The concept of video games has changed so dramatically that we probably couldn't even guess where we are now just five years ago. Digital technology is on the cusp of exposing the internet's true potential for video games. Odds are for the way we play games to be totally different, again, in just two or three years.

Technically, video games have evolved far from their origins. The billions of dollars industry has evolved from pixels to almost photo-realistic graphics, expanding from arcade machines to personal computers, consoles, mobile devices like tablets and phones, and headsets for virtual reality.

Video game-related technology will only continue to develop and improve throughout the year 2020 and in the future.

Here are some predictions of the gaming technology that are expected to become a reality by 2020.

  • Super–immersive gameplay via Virtual Reality (VR) and graphics with photorealism.
  • Development of open-source gaming.
  • Web Gaming.
  • Expanding the utilization of Augmented Reality (AR).
  • Handheld controllers returned.
  • Secondary displays and Gaming Devices.
  • Virtual reality: Virtual or Interactive.


Career in Game Testing

Game Testing is the dream job of every dedicated gamer. Playing the video games is where you get paid. If you wonder if there's a limit, then no! Any pick whatsoever. Game development is just like any other testing job where you're expected to check the game before it's delivered to end users to give them a gaming experience that's glitch free.

The spectrum of game research is quite limited but individually they are comprehensive. The development of the game involves checking whether the game has the right gameplay and functions, whether it runs smoothly without crashing on all the devices it is supposed to.

Video games are fairly complicated products that contain all manner of codes and algorithms in them, a variety of things might possibly go wrong. This is exactly why testing a game is just as critical as testing any other web service or software. Gaming testers play the game over and over in every way to ensure that the game is safe enough to be marketed to interested players around the world.

Although playing games is definitely fun, it's mainly a work for which a tester is paid. In addition to playing the game to determine whether it's fit for use, game testers specifically look for potential problems and bugs.

Future of Gaming in India 2020

India has almost 300 million gamers. Of these, 95 percent are below 30. There are also Professional Gamers in India who can play in the Gaming Arenas and Tournaments with other country gamers. Reports indicate that the gaming industry is more than 1.1 trillion dollars in India itself by 2020. And they also indicate that India's gamers will double in figure as compared with 2017. All in the 3–year period. If a gamer does not have to do some boring 9 – 5 job in order to earn money, he can earn it by doing what he loves to do. In tournaments such as Dota players are going to win $1 million. That's more than life savings for an average employee.

Gaming in India has received a boost with the introduction of 4G and FTTH in recent years. Prices have become more efficient, helping not only corporations but gamers across India as well. We saw an increase in mobile gaming with the launch of 4G in India and will play a major role in the industry. FTTH that is already implemented in tier–1 cities provides high-speed internet connection directly from the ISP via optical fiber to your home, which has enhanced service quality. Gaming cafés and colleges serve as hotspots for gaming in tier–2 cities and most championships are held in these colleges because of the existence of reliable infrastructure, which in turn encourages the growth of gambling.

Esports is growing in India, with the launch of several tournaments with unparalleled prize pools. With several companies jumping in and helping the room grow, Esports is rapidly changing the industry. Monthly competitions provide a livelihood for professional gamers and also provide development for various sports-related realms such as cosplayers, shout casters, and analysts and so on.

We foresee a boost in VR and AR gaming in India, too. VR devices are readily available to people, and families opt-in for the taste of virtual reality. Every day, mobile phones are growing effective and showing to be effective AR devices. Every day new games are launched which take advantage of the augmented reality and take advantage of the technology to a new level. Mobile gaming in India is already on the rise due to easy entry and affordably priced and stable internet connections. With the amount of time people spend in mobile devices, many developers shift their approach to mobile games and appealing to a large chunk of gamers who choose mobile devices as their gaming equipment over expensive PCs and consoles. With the growing body of research on game development in our country, the next big title could be India's.
