Google reveals site for its GDC 2019 game-streaming service announcement

A teaser ad for what is likely the announcement of Google Gaming Hardware at GDC 2019

The teaser asks people to gather around as it unveils its "vision for the future of gaming". Google released a teaser trailer last night, which doesn't really tell us anything at all - but it's very definitely related to games.

I'm excited to finally be able to share that I have joined Google as VP! It all kicks off on March 19th at 10:00 AM Pacific / 1:00 PM Eastern, and we'll cover the news here at Gamnesia.

Google's entry into the video game world is all but confirmed. The games are powered by Google's high-performance computers, which then stream the images to the web browser in a similar way Netflix streams videos. It prompts gamers to "discover a new way to play".

Developing: No survivors in Ethiopian Airlines crash

Rumours about Google's entry into the console gaming space have swirled for what seems an eternity now.

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. Well, at a minimum, it's worth offering a reminder that Google will reportedly show off a new device next week for streaming games that's tied to the company's Project Steam offering.
