It seems that Google is very keen on launching its own game streaming service. According to some reports, the representatives of the company held various meetings with game development studios. These meetings took place at the at E3 2018. E3 is the video game trade show that took place in Los Angeles earlier in June. The company is trying it’s hard to get game developers interest in the service which has the internal codename of Yeti. However, according to some reports, it is even planning to acquire entire game studios. This move is mainly made to make the game studios can work on the game titles for Yeti.

According to the same reports, Google also met with a number of major companies in March. These meetings took place at the Game Developers Conference, in Google’s backyard of San Francisco. However, there is no confirmation on which specific game development teams had meetings with Google.

Google idea of having its own streaming service:

The tech giant is trying to dip its toes in game development from a long time now. It was the first home of Niantic Labs. The Niantic Labs is the developer of the AR-based mobile game Ingress. However, in 2015, Niantic broke away from Google and became an independent game developer. Later, in 2017, the company acquires Owlchemy Labs. It was one of the popular developers for PC and console VR games. Some of the popular games by Owlchemy Labs are Job Simulator and Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality.

According to some previous reports, the main idea behind the development of Yeti is to allow gamers to stream games onto their PC or mobile device, while the high-end graphics will be handled in the cloud. This setup is very much similar to Nvidia’s Geforce Now service. Nvidia’s Geforce Now service is currently available in a beta form for Windows and Mac PCs.
