Future of Video Game Music?

by Mishaal | Feb 14, 2023

Video game music has come a long way since the 8-bit era. With advancements in technology, the future of video game music is looking more and more exciting and I’ve often wondered what changes and evolutions might take place in this specific area of the video game industry.

In the near future, I think a lot of alterations might come in the VR and AR fields. Virtual reality is expected to play a big role in the future of video game music. In VR games, players will be fully immersed in the game world, and music will play a crucial role in enhancing the experience, much more so than it does currently. The music will be more ambient and will be used to create a sense of place. Players might also be able to interact with the music, for example, by hitting objects in the game world to create musical sounds.

Another trend that could possibly take place is machine learning and AI producing entire pieces of music on their own. With models and tools becoming smart enough to create art and do all sorts of other interactive, it’s only a matter of time till someone develops a smart tool capable of making, producing, and composing music, don’t you think? I don’t know how I feel about that, but it is something that I think will happen. Time will tell how we accept or reject such practices though!

Also, wouldn’t it be cool if the video game itself was smart enough to know what kind of music you already listen to and like and play stuff similar to that during the entire video game? Thus creating a unique experience for each player. Maybe you could link your Spotify or Soundcloud to the game to give the algorithm some fodder to digest and then it could predict what kind of music to play during the entire game? I think that sounds like a really cool exploration tip for game developers!

As always, thoughts, comments, and discussions are appreciated in the comments!
