In an interview with IGN, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot laid out his vision for the future of video gaming. First up, he notes the future of gaming will be streaming, predicting that technology will eventually be able to offer a better experience than having to buy a machine and replace the regularly. He went on about new game models, and said interaction with the community is bound to become a more important feature of future games:
In the games he’s envisioned, with massive connected online worlds that players have a part in creating themselves, Guillemot sees a new way for technology to grow.

“It's so interesting to see what many players can do together and what they can build,” he said. “It would be bad not to use that, to help us to envision what the world is going to be. We are not going to stop all of the problems, but we can discover how we react in [certain] situations. How do we build those differently? What kind of social environment do we want to live in? How people behave in some different types of situations, and so on. So why not use it? We live together in those games, we act, we do things. We have to introduce what the next technologies are going to bring to us so that we can anticipate and play with them before they actually exist for everyone.”
