Google Is Probably Making a Video Game Console

Google Hypes Its “Vision for the Future of Gaming” With GDC Teaser

Google released a teaser trailer last night, which doesn't really tell us anything at all - but it's very definitely related to games. The footage clearly highlights various genres of games from racing, to exotic RPGs, sports games, space sims, and medieval battlers, making us think it's for Project Stream. Supposedly the controller for Google's new gaming vision was leaked ahead of schedule, but reports now say it's not real.

Google tweeted out a YouTube video along with a link: https://g.co/gatheraround That link leads you to a microsite hosted at the Google Store, which is pretty strong evidence that Google will be launching a physical product we'll be able to buy from that store.

We don't have to wait long to know more though since GDC 2019 is just a week away. The first is Project Stream, which allows gamers to play AAA titles using nothing but a web browser. The potential Google console has been rumored for months.

Reports say Google has been experimenting with games hardware and content for a while now. Separately, game industry veteran Jade Raymond announced she has joined Google as a VP - and while she hasn't revealed what she would be vice president of, it should be safe to assume it's related to gaming.

Google plans to unveil its plans on March 19, 2019 at 1PM EST.
