The open-world games have swept the video gaming market in recent times. At the turn of the millennium, 3D games such as Shenmue and Grand Theft Auto III set the blueprint of expansive spaces and nonlinear play. Now the gaming sector has evolved into photorealistic behemoths on many continents. The games that have released in recent times such a Red Dead Redemption 2 has arguably been the biggest, most convincing, and successful open-world game that has been downloaded by millions of gaming enthusiasts.

The reason behind the success of these user-generated, open-world games is the new technologies that are being used in the current games. The new 3D software and flagship products have seemingly increased the quality of the games. As the world got bigger and as graphical fidelity rose, production costs have also increased which has increased the gaming sustainability of such endeavors.

On the immediate horizon, new techno-thrillers such as Watch Dogs Legion and Cyberpunk 2077 is all set to hit the markets which in look and feel looks mesmerizing. Brighter, leaner, and perhaps least pessimistic is upcoming indie game Sable which has Moebius-inspired graphics. The gaming giants expect that the future technology used in this game will put the players in the shoes of its titular character.
