Google schedules event on March 19 at GDC 2019, gaming project announcement expected

Google is hosting a keynote at this years GDC (Game Developers Conference) that promises to reveal all. While Google has been a part of the GDC and hosting events since 2010, this is the first time the company is holding a keynote. It’s unclear what the keynote is about. 

Going back in time, back in 2018, we’ve heard rumors about Google working on a subscription-based game streaming service that would work with its existing hardware or a Google-designed gaming console. The project is codenamed ‘Yeti’.  Google, back in October 2018, announced Project Stream, a gaming streaming service with a technical test of “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.”

Currently, Google is said to be tackling issues that may arise from streaming service such as buffering and graphical degradation. These are issues that currently make streaming games frustrating. Apart from March 19, 10 AM PT (11:30 PM IST) keynote, Google is hosting two themed days of sessions at GDC.
