DICE believes there’s still a lot of room for hardcore gaming and even though the current trends are saying otherwise, there will still be a lot of demand for games that push the hardware.
“People are generally correct that things are changing, and a lot of people in this industry are acknowledging that – some people don’t want to see it, though. But I would also say the people who are painting such a grim picture of where we’re going are wrong,” DICE GM Karl Magnus Troedsson told Edge.
Considering DICE makes advanced tools and engines for EA, it’s not surprising that they think games that utilize a lot of hardware will still be prevalent.
“There will always be a demand for games that require a lot of hardware to deliver a really hi-def experience. Whether that will be delivered by CPUs and memory sitting in your room, or somewhere else, I don’t know. Probably both. But one thing is for sure, people will continue to want to play the best-looking games out there,” Troedsson said.
