Google is planning to host a mysterious gaming-related event at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) next month. Google has started to send out invitations to members of the media today inviting them to “gather around” for a Google keynote which simply promises you “all will be revealed” on March 19th at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
As the Game developer venue name suggests, Google is working on a product related to the project stream. With the project stream, Google wants to solve the biggest challenges related to the streaming intensive, interactive content with minimal lag. Companies all over the world want to highlight how Streaming could bring modifications in gaming like it did music and movies.
“Project Stream is geared toward home internet connections capable of 25 megabits per second,” Google manager Catherine Hsiao wrote in a blog post back in October. “For this test, we’re going to push the limits with one of the most demanding applications for streaming a blockbuster video game.”
Google more commonly participates in the GDC with developer-focused events that provide the latest updates, information, and changes for Android game developers. This year Google keynote is going to be entirely different because they have been working on the project stream service over the past six months, which also allow Chrome users to stream game in the browser.
However, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was the only game to be tested among the users with the help of Google service, and it seems like Google has much more to say about the project stream at the GDC event. Google public test finished last month and might be now the company is ready to give a full view at their plans for the full game streaming service.
Google will also face competition from Sony, Nvidia, Microsoft, and even Amazon. On the other hand, Microsoft is planning its own Xcloud game streaming service while both Nvidia and Sony are already streaming games over the internet.
