Difference between ゆくすえ, しょうらい and みらい

Is there any difference between these two words? I first came across 未来 in a PS3 game (FFXIII-2) and after a bit of digging, I found it in a manga and also some songs. So I get the feeling that 未来 is used more in fictional material or art. Is my theory correct? Though I get the feeling that Im badly mistaken.

未来 is the more general term. 将来 is about future with particular focus on someone's carrier in life, or a master plan of some institution, place, product, etc.
