Top game design trends in 2022

Although the evolution of games is difficult to predict, we can discuss what we know right now. Of course, new game designs appear all the time, but in this article we’ll be looking at what has happened in 2022.

Live Streaming

Live streaming has been around for a while, but it’s only recently that it’s become a major part of gaming culture. It’s not just about watching people play video games, either—it’s about creating an interactive experience for the viewer. It’s about making them feel like they’re actually in the game with you, or at least that they’re playing alongside you. And it’s also about getting your game out there to a wider audience than just those who have bought copies of it on Steam or in stores. This trend is all about creating an immersive environment for players and viewers alike. In addition, live streaming allows developers to build up hype around their games before they’re released by showing off some of the features and gameplay elements that are most likely to get people talking about them when they finally do see release dates posted online (or maybe even before then).


In the last decade, eSports has grown from a niche hobby to a global phenomenon that has changed the way people play games. The most popular eSports games such as League of Legends and Call of Duty have evolved from simple shooters into complex role-playing games with high-level strategies and tactics. Although these games are still in their infancy, they are gaining popularity rapidly and are on track to become one of the main trends in game design in 2022. As eSports continues to grow, so too will its impact on game design. In 2022, developers will be able to use new technologies such as VR and AR to create immersive experiences that have never been seen before. They will also be able to tap into new revenue streams such as sponsorships, advertising revenue or even prize money for competitive gamers who win tournaments.

Blockchain gaming

The trend towards blockchain games has been building for some time, but it’s now becoming a mainstream phenomenon. The use of blockchain technology allows developers to create games that are decentralized and can be played on the blockchain itself. This enables players to interact with each other without needing a central server or any kind of third-party involvement. While this may sound like science fiction right now, it’s actually happening right now. There are several well-known blockchain games available today including CryptoKitties, CryptoHorse and EtherCraft. These games allow players to collect unique digital assets which they can then sell or trade through smart contracts on the blockchain itself (this is where the word “crypto” comes from). We expect that this trend will continue over the next five years as more developers embrace this new technology and start creating their own blockchain-based games.

AR/VR gaming

VR is already being used for a variety of purposes, from entertainment to education. For example, it can be used to create highly immersive virtual environments that allow users to experience places or events from any angle. It can also be used to create an immersive gaming experience by allowing users to interact with their surroundings using hand gestures. AR will allow you to see your surroundings overlaid with digital images, which makes it possible for you to see what’s around you without having to take off your glasses or headset. As well as being useful for everyday purposes (such as finding your way around an unfamiliar city), AR is also being used by gamers who want more immersion in their gaming experience. In 2022, it’s likely that both VR and AR will continue evolving as new technologies emerge.
