Frankly, virtual reality is not future technology anymore. We already have pretty neat VR devices that can give the player an otherworldly experience. Despite having VR, we still lack behind in producing photorealistic gameplay in our games. Surprisingly, it is going to change in the year 2020. In other words, we can enjoy ultra-immersive games with VR and Photorealistic graphics, cool right!
