What exactly does Google have in store for us?
Google has been making a lot of waves recently, with teases about its upcoming panel at GDC 2019, which reports suggest will see them formally revealing their own gaming hardware and their introduction to the industry.

And now, they’ve made yet another announcement to solidify that. Taking to Twitter, Google confirmed that multiple other industry personalities will be making appearances at their panel as well.
