The Future of Play: New Platforms, Games and Tech


The Future of Play brings together 3 of the most influential people in gaming today to talk through what the future of gaming will look like. What are platforms we will play on? With the explosion of smaller studios what kinds of games are being built and how are they different than the games we play today? How will the metaverse and crypto effect the types of games we will see?

Gaming will continue to take share from TV and social media and we also want to cover what principles should be in place to create fair, equitable, and healthy spaces.
