Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney claimed that Virtual Reality is just a niche concept for casual gamers in a recent interview with GamesIndustry. He also went on to state that Augmented Reality will become the next big thing in the developing realm.

“Whereas AR, if you look out a number of years I bet the majority of mankind will have an AR device – it will redefine interaction with computers and replace computer monitors, tablets, televisions and every kind of play technology.” While AR may be a view years out, it’s exciting to think about the endless ways AR could be incorporated not into just video games, but into daily life as well.

Sweeney promises more news within the year and we can only hope to apart of the Augmented Reality Generation.
