See Teaser For Google's Big Gaming Announcement

A teaser ad for what is likely the announcement of Google Gaming Hardware at GDC 2019

The idea is Google's service will tie together its Google Play storefront, the planned game streaming Project Stream service, and a possible games console or low-priced set-top box. Project Yeti, as we noted last month, is the codename for the hardware that would run the game streaming service. Also, expect the company to talk about game partnerships with companies like Ubisoft, which it partnered with during its public trial. Soon, we'll find out what Google has in store for the gaming market.

Their statements of intent could have traditional players Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo looking over their shoulders. 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.

That's the phrasing the company used in a tweet today that was accompanied by a video asking users to "gather round" and which can be seen at the top of this post. Supposedly the controller for Google's new gaming vision was leaked ahead of schedule, but reports now say it's not real.
