Before even Google I/O 2019, the company will have its chance to address an audience it has not directly talked to that many other smartphone companies have: gamers.

The company sent out an invitation for an event on March 19 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center — just in time for the Game Developers Conference — to Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier. As that publications covers a wide range of gaming topics, Schreier is betting on this keynote to publicize a cloud-streaming platform for games.

Kotaku sources have said that Google’s newfound involvement in games will also extend to a new console and, perhaps, acting as a publishing house, too — on the latter front, the company is said to be making individual developer hires and considering acquisitions.

What this means for the mobile side is not entirely known — gaming phones have popped up in the last year as the rage of an underserved niche — but if there are any companies out there that have the capacity to bring a quality experience to centrally-served games, it might as well be Google.
