When someone asked Shroud about the future of FPS games, mentioning whether it is close to dying. Shroud took a moment to realize the gravity of the question.

FPS genre is going to stay here for a long time

RTS is done unless they get revitalized through some other genre.” It is true; real-time strategy games have lost their popularity. Perhaps it was taken over by FPS. The main issue is, first-person-games give the player a much more immersive experience. It was quite a revolutionary innovation when it came out first.

Not likely. According to Shroud, “FPS is in its high-point right now. It’s in the highest its ever been right now.”The fact that some people don’t even know what RTS is anymore. That feels like that genre is done. FPS, on the other hand, is full of gamers. Like that is the first choice any gamer would naturally gravitate to. 

 Shroud said, “Natural Selection is a game where you have one team of aliens and one team of humans.” He said that it is popular because 95% of it is FPS and 5% is RTS. Shroud mentioned few games which have stood the test of time, and all of them are FPS games. “CS lasted two decades,” Call Of Duty, Overwatch, “Valorant is going to last another 10 years probably.“The fact remains that FPS will always be ‘The’ genre in the gaming world.
