What’s in the Future for Esports?

The world of Esports has seen a dramatic expansion in recent times, and nothing can put an end to its potential. The inclusion of games in Esports that aims to bring different gamers together for competition worldwide has grown to be a bona fide billion-dollar industry. There are now hordes of gamers joining live streams and live sports events, putting a dent in traditional sports events.

Do note that Esports is subject to changes, which sets it apart from traditional sports.


The future of competitive games

One form of dramatic changes Esports go through is the rise and fall in popularity of such games. Although there are sure to be mainstays of the Esports scene, including CS:GO, LoL, Dota 2, and others. It’s a different case for seasonal games like Fortnite.

The Fortnite game has a widespread influence throughout the world, especially among young gamers. Its popularity owes to its sophistication, ease of access to streamers, and freedom to play without investing capital. You can imagine the horde of Fortnite fans who attends the world cup or tune in through twitch to watch gamers compete with such benefits.

However, do you know with the adverse competition in Esports, the popularity of a seasonal game like Fortnite could diminish? The point is in a few years to come, there could be an emergence with another game with exciting features that will place Fortnite on a dead spot. This is just the case where traditional athletes train for sport with a long term goal, but later on, they move into other managerial aspects.

Just like those traditional games, what one experience in Esports is a governing philosophy being developed so that players can enhance their skills and tactics. The players can then apply the established skills to other games. The question now is: Is this possible? I don’t see the possibility of a pro-Fortnite player take their skills to a game like Dota 2 and enjoy the same level of success.

The Next step in Esports training

An Esports player’s attempt to shift to another game will require retraining and meeting another opponent that proves a worthy challenge. Now, most Esports players spend an average of 8 hours a day in training: what happens when they reach their peak and the gaming lobbies currently lack gamers capable of providing a challenge?

The answer to that is AI (Artificial Intelligence) in the form of bots. Many of the old and even upcoming games now have bots, including the likes of Battlefront 2. The Bots use AI written by game developers to behave similarly to a multiplayer in a game. The bots act to simulate the actions of a real-life player with no humans controlling them.

Therefore, if a worthy player or coach fades out of a game, there’s an option of AI replacing and simulating their actions to play against competitors. The Coaches who train can implement the different tactics into Esports to build up trainers. The other best thing with AI in Esports is that you can tweak the playing mode with the difficulty level you wish to compete with.

Bringing in New Talent

Now, let’s consider newbie Esports players who have only begun their careers and those who haven’t played yet. With AI coming into play, there’s a possibility it will be available for casual players to implement for a decent fee. This, in turn, helps improve any in-game performance. This will bring a scenario where a new player buys the latest Call of Duty game. After that, he/she purchases the in-game sports training AI once they are ready to invest in their progress.

blankFurthermore, the advent of AI into Esports has affected the lifespan of both new and established games. Remember how AI technology can replicate the moves of professional players for new players to train against. This same technology could be used together and distributed to the audience for players to play against a virtual representation of their favorite Esports players.

The inclusion of such new talents through such technology will benefit both marketing teams and players. This will turn out well, as players will sign up for virtual presence in exchange for Virtual fees. The players then get the chance to play with the biggest stars in gaming. In the long run, bringing new talents and involving AI will bring more developments to the world of Esports.

The Accessibility of Future Esports

Now that you understand Esports’ full concepts let’s examine how assessable it is to new players. The big question should be: How easy is it for amateur players to become involved in the Esports industry. To answer this question, one has to take a look at different gaming platforms available

From the different gaming options available, mobile gaming makes up 51% of the world’s gaming revenue, where the biggest audience is in China. If you look at popular fantasy games like Hearthstone, Gwent, you will discover they are easy to play on mobile phones. The ease of access to these games through flexible mobile devices is responsible for the massive influx of professional gamers.


A game like Fortnite is now available to download on mobile devices, and with the help of gamepads, one can dominate the leader boards. Soon, Esports will be lucrative: many businesses and institutions will set up special gaming hotels for game lovers to horn their skills. It seems like buying a gaming laptop for $2000 will be a crazy idea in the near future.

The accessibility will go beyond mobile devices: players will walk into a game house and play Esports with interactive audiences.

The Technology of Future Esports

Esports is constantly changing, and there is bound to be a different way to run it in the nearest future. For this present time, there’s the unveiling of the 5G network, set to rock the mobile gaming world. With the 5G network, a user can jump into stable mobile gameplay without looking for high-speed Wi-Fi.

Furthermore, long term prospects show Virtual reality will be included in the world of Esports as it’s still underutilized presently. That’s said, Esports and the gaming world is bound to see a viable V.R game with the same level of success as Fortnite. All facts stated above are just a few ways Esports could change in the future. More realities will be unveiled as technology advances.
