EA announced a push toward streamed gaming at its E3 conference today. That comes hot on the heels of the very unexpected release of Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version, an exclusively streamed version of a game that assumedly wouldn’t have been able to run on the Switch’s hardware natively. Together, these releases paint a strange and somewhat scary vision of the possible future of gaming.
Especially when taken alongside Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot recent comments that the next console generation would be the last, that future starts to seem even more believable. Guillemot said he thinks “streaming will become more accessible to many players and make it not necessary to have big hardware at home.”
