According to latest report by The Information, Google might be working on a new subscription-based game streaming service.
The report revealed that the service is in the works for around two years as it recently hired former Xbox and PlayStation executive Phil Harrison to lead the project. As Harrison served on the advisory board of cloud-gaming service provider Gaikai, the report might hold grounds after all.
In case Google launches a video game streaming service, it won’t be highly surprising as other companies are revealing their own products. For instance, Sony’s PlayStation Nowand Nvidia’s GeForce Now have been in the market for quite a while. In case you are wondering, the GeForce now was announced back in 2017 and is a service that allows users to play PC games on Macs as well as other PCs which might not be able to run the game at desired settings. At the moment, the service is still in beta and users can sign up by invitation only. Apart from both of these companies, HP recently launched its own cloud gaming service for OMEN users during CES 2018 last month.
While nothing is concrete at the moment, as we go forward, we are likely to learn more about the service in the coming months.
