It’s been rumored that Google is going to announce a streaming platform for gaming very soon. Furthermore, Project Yeti will allow games to be streamed directly from Google’s library of games. The Project Yeti platform is rumored to work without any bulky hardware. GDC is the Game Developers Conference held in San Francisco, California each year. It is the chance for game developers to meet and talk about the latest and greatest in gaming. Also, a chance for big companies to show off their newest technology. Google is said to reveal its platform to at GDC March 19 at 10 am.
The technology behind Project Yeti has already been seen with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Likewise, it was used as a demo to showcase Google’s Project Stream technology last February. Project Yeti could allow Google’s Project Stream technology to be used to allow games to be streamed like any other subscription service.
Many speculate this to be just a pretense from Google as many believe streaming games to be too difficult for a company to manage. But, with Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass doing rather well, Google might be onto something. This home console is rumored to include in-game voice chat capabilities for easier multiplayer gaming. With the need for the latest and greatest in tech from gaming consoles, a subscription service might be the thing to bypass all that high-end tech.
In conclusion, Google’s Project Yeti is set to be revealed at GDC 2019 at their keynote presentation. GDC is set to happen in the middle of March in San Francisco. Google’s keynote at GDC is set to happen on March 19th at 10 am. What do you think of Google’s newest possible gaming platform? Do you think it’s a hoax or the real deal?
