Gaming Predictions for 2023

As we approach 2023, the gaming world is eagerly anticipating major announcements from the year. In this article, I will share my top 5 predictions for what we might see in 2023 and discuss their potential implications for the gaming industry.

1. Project Keystone (Microsoft)
* I predict that Microsoft will announce a late 2023 release of its cloud gaming device, which will be fine-tuned for a holiday 2024 release. This comes after Xbox Series S’s $299 price difference with Keystone needs to provide significant value to consumers.
* Possible announcements: Hideo Kojima’s Xbox title, which could be related to cloud technology.
1. New Console (Sony)
* I anticipate a first half of 2023 announcement for Sony’s new console, featuring a detachable disc drive to decrease shipping and production costs. This console is expected to completely replace the standard PlayStation 5 model.
* Possible lawsuits and closures: The long and complicated process of the acquisition between Sony and Microsoft may result in some form of closure, eventually bringing an end to lawsuits for years to come.
1. Grand Theft Auto VI (Rockstar Games)
* I strongly believe that 2023 will be the year of the official announcement for Grand Theft Auto VI. Following Rockstar’s past keyboards announcements and release dates, a 2023 announcement would likely lead to a 2025 release.
* Possible updates: Although a release announcement for 2024 is possible, Rockstar’s track record suggests that the keyboards will be pushed back another year anyway.
1. Nintendo Switch 2 (Nintendo)
* I expect at least an announcement of a new Nintendo Switch model in 2023, as the current Nintendo Switch is approaching its mid-gen upgrade.
* Possible generation upgrade: Nintendo may be planning a generation upgrade for their Switch consoles, rendering mid-gen upgrades obsolete.
1. Expansion of Esports (Global)
* I predict that 2023 will see significant growth and expansion in esports, as more players and teams join the competitive gaming arena. This includes increased investment from global brands and organizations, further legitimizing esports as a professional sports league.
* Possible developments: Esports competitions may move towards more lucrative prize pools or provide additional opportunities for players to monetize their success in the industry.
These predictions are based on rumors and inside knowledge, but they offer a glimpse into what might shape the gaming landscape in 2023. As we enter the new year, stay tuned for updates on these predictions and other exciting developments in the industry!
