A report says that Amazon, the world’s third biggest IT company, is currently building their own video game streaming service. It is also expected to launch in 2020.
Apparently, Amazon has been talking to game publishers that would be interested in distributing their video games through the said service. It is also reported that the service will be similar to the ones Microsoft and Google are currently developing.
To those of you who didn’t know, Microsoft has been working on a video game streaming service called Project XCloud. According to them, the service is developed to enable console gaming to any device including Xbox, PCs, gaming laptops, and mobile phones.
Google, on the other hand, has launched their gaming stream service last year and was called Project Stream. The said service promises gamers that they will be able to stream any title, including the latest AAA titles to be released in the market, by just using their browser.
Project Stream started on October 5 and gave players the chance to explore the world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey through Google Chrome. The demo will last for an hour, and anyone who tried out the game will get the full Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey game from Google entirely for free. The said giveaway is to last until January 15. Players will have to link their Project Stream account to Ubisoft Uplay to get the game.
These big companies are focused on creating an environment where gamers would be able to run several games and be streamed to several devices including smartphones, tablets, and even smart TVs.
