Google To Announce Its Own Gaming Platform On May 15th

Google To Announce Its Own Gaming Platform On May 15th


This one’s out of left field, folks. Google has started sending out invites to the press for a event its hosting on May 15th, where the company will reveal its vision of the gaming future.



It must be why Google hired a Chief Games Designer three days ago, one who’s worked on everything from arcade games, such as Sinistar, to recent hits, including Alan Wake. His name is Noah Falstein, a gaming industry veteran.

May 15th is just 6 days before May 21st, the day Microsoft will reveal the next Xbox. Interesting times ahead.

The real question here is, will Google actually launch a games console, or is this just a Google Play update? It must be a mix of both, right? Because who’d setup a dedicated event for a simple update? Google obviously wants the media to know about this, so there must be something of significance to be revealed.

Thanks, Gamefocus.

    Very interesting! I would love to see Google throw its resources at developing a game console. They have enough money and tallent to make something really fantastic. Crossing my fingers!
