Google is about to reveal the extent to which it plans to enter the gaming market at last.
There have been rumors and reports of Google wanting to enter the gaming space for a very long time now. We’ve had reports of a Google console, as well as a streaming service, with Google even holding a public beta for the latter late last year. However, now, we may be about to get the full picture of Google’s gaming aspirations.
This morning, Google sent out invitations to multiple gaming outlets for a keynote it will hold next month, in March, that will be focused on its gaming initiatives. The keynote is scheduled for March 19 at 10 AM PST/1 PM EST. That apart, we know nothing about what this will even entail. It could be anything from new Play Store APIs for Android gaming, to more details on Google’s streaming service, to, hell, a new Google gaming console, or Google funded high budget AAA video games.
Right now, all we can do is guess, but I feel like Google’s entry in the market would give it a shakeup I’d like to see. And hey, Google probably wants to beat Apple to the punch.
