Google are expected to officially reveal their Game Streaming Service during the upcoming Game Developers Conference, beginning March 18. You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes (even Will Ferrell would solve this case) to come to this conclusion. Google’s invitation for their GDC keynote address features a .gif of a hallway with an increasingly brighter white light and features the March 19 date. This is finished off with the elegant slogan, ‘gather around’. The invitation is concluded with “All will be revealed at the Google Keynote, 10:00am on March 19, 2019. Find us in Moscone South, San Francisco.”.
Google haven’t been hiding their desire to enter the game streaming market. Last year Google teased project ‘Yeti’, a game streaming service designed for the Google Chromecast or potentially a Google console. This evolved into the beta test of their streaming technology, ‘Project Stream’, which concluded earlier this year. Project Stream was an impressive piece of technology that allowed participates to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey within their Google Chrome browser.
All this and more will be revealed at GDC 2019, running from March 18 to March 22.
