I think that playing in the “cloud”will be a very important part of the landscape industry, “said the developer.
As for the future it appears quite obvious: “There will be another generation of consoles, big MMO’s on PC, more moving towards digital distribution and mobile games expanding its presence in the industry. The big games will increase development costs, but the games should continue with a low range much more vibrant than, say, the film industry. “As for his past, the developer stated that the industry has changed at an astonishing and exciting pace: “I’m overwhelmed by all possible directions from today.
Twenty years ago you could only focus one platform and you knew you could be picked up almost entirely. The challenges in the industry have grown almost as fast as my knowledge, but never reached a point where you do not feel that was interesting and exciting with which to work and learn. “
