Honestly, I'd just play around as much as you can and find something you really like, try open-source projects, hobby projects, etc. But even then, after a couple of years, you'll probably find something else you enjoy doing more.

I started out doing web development and loved it. From front-end design to help better user experience to back-end cloud architectures. Now after 5 years of web development I made a change and currently work with robotics and computer vision and enjoy doing that much more.

In my spare time, I still dabble in web development but my focus is more on industrial implementations using computer vision. I think you should focus less on a specific specialization and just choose something you enjoy doing and focus on that, the knowledge and specialization will come.

If you're working on a specific goal e.g. to become a game developer then there are of course more specific things you should probably focus on but if not, why not have some fun and work with the things you like?
