Google has released a video teasing their ‘vision for the future of gaming’, revealing that the 19th March 2019, during GDC, is the date we will all get to see what gaming goodness Google has been cooking up.
The teaser video doesn’t reveal much at all, simply showing very pretty, but generic video game environments that will look familiar to anyone who’s played games in the last ten years. Caves, a stadium entrance, a racing car garage, a military aircraft, a spaceship hanger, a gladiator-style arena entrance and an overgrown mushroom hive.
It has been a well-known fact that Google has been working on video game technology for a long time now; this announcement will finally put to rest the rumours and speculation. Will it be a streaming service? Will they be releasing their own console? Was that awful “leaked” controller really a fake? Hopefully we get answers to all of these questions and more.
Last year Google trialled Project Stream, a way to play the latest video games through Google’s Chrome browser. It was an incredible showcase, allowing select players to trial Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the service, streaming the game to PC’s and laptops that simply could not run the game natively. It was a glimpse at a future where high-end PC’s and consoles are not necessary to play the latest and greatest games.
The Digital Fix will be on-hand to report on everything Google announces on the 19th of March.
