Google Is Probably Making a Video Game Console


A video released on Google's official YouTube channel teases "Google's vision for the future of gaming".

In related news, we could also get our first glimpse of a game controller Google is apparently working on, for which a patent made headlines in recent days.

The tech giant is expected to announce a new streaming game service at a press event during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco on March 19.

I'm excited to finally be able to share that I have joined Google as VP! The Ubisoft partnership wouldn't be surprising, given that they tested their cloud-streaming game service with Assassin's Creed Odyssey running within a browser window. Google already showed off the service running Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Odyssey during a public test late past year. It prompts gamers to "discover a new way to play". The potential Google console has been rumored for months.

It could be that Project Stream and Project Yeti work together in some way, and the GDC event will see Google launching a hardware product along with the commercial version of Project Stream. We'll be sure to update you once we have more information.
