Future Game Engines Need to be Future Compatible

The future of video gaming is going to take a mega turn with the advent of twenty-first century. The key dynamic that is going to take the driving seat involves cloud based technology. Cloud technology in particular has already advanced many applications,resulting in massive technical evolution.The expected change is massive and inevitable, which must be welcomed with excitement. Scientists across the globe would agree unanimously that emerging technologies are going to make our life more exhilarating and comfortable, though a little challenging as well.

Time to a Major Paradigm Shift

As compared to the earliervideo games, the contemporary video game implications involving supplementary hardware platforms and tools havealready evolveda new range of‘game engine middleware’. The existing game developers are more focused at targeting a video game engine than the hardware developments. However, emergingvideo gamesoftwares find it very challenging to deal with outdated hardware platforms available. Such innovative games have allowed a major paradigm shift that has reduced many problems and challenges, gamers used to face while playing the video games. Now it is being anticipated that cloud-based development will cause a major paradigm shift contributing to unprecedented growth of video game engines.


Emerging Video Game Engine Terminology

The video games use the term ‘video game engine’, though contemporary game engines come with an ‘engine’, an ‘editor’, a wide range of incorporated and optional ‘middleware’ and ‘plugins’. The video game terminology is continuously enhancing its scope with additional extensions like ‘next-gen video game engines’. However, the wordslike ‘platform’ and ‘system’ seem more comprehensive in defining latest video game terminology emerging out of the cloud-based video games and other inventions.A modern ‘game development system’ includes the ‘engine’, ‘platform’, inbuilt ‘tools’ and‘plug-ins’, additionally incorporated ‘middleware’ and an extensive ‘ecosystem’ that supports development and designing to create new video games.The successful games are developed to addressthe current problems, which need to be dealt with the proposed design of the game. As the radius of our problems is expanding day after day, so do our video games with evolving video game ecosystems.

However, all our developmental pursuits receive a major setback when existing paradigms and architectures become insufficient and incompatible with upcoming technological and ideological improvements. The difficulty arises when game developers, working over a new idea, face lack of concurrence between increased code complexity and current ‘game engine ecosystems’. This precisely means that a more comprehensive architectural and engineering rebuilt is required immediately. The existing video game platforms cannot cope up with the robust software models containing innovative video game scripting. The modern video game developers desperately need more comprehensive video game platforms that deliver absolute freedom and flexibility to incorporate new ideas and innovative game designs. However, change is inevitable, as it is sure to occur, even if we do not prepare ourselves to adjust accordingly.


However, you would be amazed to know that several new game development systems are under development process, and very soon we might come across a revolutionary video game system that we can really boast of. I am sure the upcoming video game systems would easily accommodate various new possible tools, plugins and platforms besides including cloud-based paradigms.

Hi there, have you ever thought how you will make games using the new Source 2 engine without paying a dime. Valve made it official at the GDC 2015 summit. Source was being replaced. Source, for anyone who is in the dark, is the engine that supported the platform
