What will the future of gaming look like? According to EverQuest studio Sony Online Entertainment's development director David Georgeson, virtual reality and augmented reality experiences are what's in store down the line.

"VR and AR are things that I personally am extremely excited about. I honestly think that’s the future of gaming," he told IGN.

During GDC 2014 last month, Sony officially announced its virtual reality head-mounted display Project Morpheus, which features a 1080p display and a 90 degree field of view. You won't need to pay $1000 for the tech and it won't launch this year, but that's all we know.

Xbox maker Microsoft is also reportedly working on an unspecified VR/AR initiative.

Outside of a handful of tech demos, Sony has not announced any games that will officially support the Project Morpheus. However, Georgeson teased that we could see Project Morpheus support for future SOE games down the road.

"I will tell you this though: I’m hugely interested in Project Morpheus," he said. "So… we’ll see what happens." SOE is currently working on EverQuest Next and EverQuest Next Landmark.

Driveclub developer Evolution Studios experimented with Project Morpheus, but the results left much to be desired, and now the game will not have any VR support whatsoever.
