Google sent out a fairly cryptic invite to the game developers and associated press this week in the form of a GIF. It teases a keynote on March 19, 2019 and more information was made available shortly confirming this would be in the form of a keynote to be held at 10 am PST during GDC this year. The media giant promises to "reveal all", and also has developer-focused sessions throughout the course of the event. An early report from The Information suggests the keynote will have Google talk about their new game-streaming service, code-named Yeti.
 
This wasn't entirely unexpected in my opinion and gaming is a viable source of revenue.

    Google has a hard enough time running Youtube correctly along with actually finishing any of their projects so I don't see much good happening if they try to get into game streaming.

    My guess is it will still be limited to more simple games. I don’t see them streaming a 50gb game and having it be playable unless you have a gigabyte network. I also wonder what the FPS would be since lag would play an issue.

    Didn't they recently abandon their Gigabit cheap internet for all program they were testing...?  ... which would have been nice/ needed for any streaming service to survive.
     
    Like alot of their projects -> announce -> test -> abandon -> pretend it never existed ->
