Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick has suggested that he believes creators will be able to make games look "exactly like live action" in ten years' time, "never mind all the other advances technology will enable."
Speaking as part of the UBS Global TMT Virtual Conference, Zelnick explained that Take-Two's business in general will probably look very different by then, and highlighted photorealism as an example (thanks GamesIndustry.biz):
"And I can't quite say what that will involve, but I think what you're going to see is technology will allow our creative folks to do things they've never been able to do before, including make games that look exactly like live-action."
"Some of what we do now looks a lot like live-action, but it's still animation. In 10 years, you'll have the option if you want to make things that look completely realistic, all done inside a computer, never mind all the other advances technology will enable."
As for this current crop of consoles, Zelnick also spoke about the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in an interview with Protocol back in September, telling the outlet that he felt Xbox would "do very well" this generation.
In terms of what lies ahead though, we'll have to wait and see. Do you think games will look "exactly like live action" in ten years, or will it take even longer until they reach that level? Give us your thoughts below.
