Google is apparently planning to create an incursion into the gaming world. After it stepped into, the perimeter of conventional games, it has always made its presence felt. Like the time when virtual reality headsets like Rift and Vive were launched, Google came out with a relatively cheap smartphone VR unit called Google Daydream. Google also came up to play with streaming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey via the Chrome browser.
Now it looks like Google is finally geared up to make a blast. Google send out email invitations to its Game Developer Conference keynote in San Francisco earlier on March 19. The email not exactly revealed much, it simply said “Gather around. All will be revealed at the Google Keynote.”
Apart from all the rumors about the recent activity, Google has announced a gaming-focused keynote earlier this week set for the upcoming month. Present time, there were a lot of questions about what exactly this keynote may reveal. Given the broad range of pies Google has its fingers in, it could be anything from a new API for Android mobile games, to a brand new gaming console, to the official launch of their new streaming service for games.
There are a few news speculations going viral about Google’s intentions. Google has been believed to be pairing a streaming subscription service with some sort of hardware. As told that it is going to be codenamed “Yeti,” and Google is supposedly courting developers for this new proposal.
The search giant’s new service is considered to be like a ‘Netflix for games,’ and also like new gaming hardware, according to 9to5Google.
According to the latest release of Google is said to be a piece of hardware that’s cheaper than Microsoft’s Xbox or Sony’s PlayStation.
We’ll find out in as soon as next month when Google is set to appear at the Game Developers Conference (GDC).
