For some in the industry, streaming video games represent the future. It must be said that the prospect of convincing the hundreds of millions of smartphone users to play games that previously required the purchase of a game console is attractive to a company.
Two strong players in the technology industry have already positioned themselves in this emerging market: Microsoft with xCloud, which has partnered with Samsung and perhaps soon Nintendo, and Google, which launched Project Stream, plans a first game console and has already approached Ubisoft.
It is now the turn of the Chinese giant Tencent to launch into this race.
Daniel Ahmad, analyst and specialist in the Asian video game market, reports several photos of the announcement made by Tencent. The service is intended to be a competitor to Google and Microsoft's solutions, and must therefore allow any game to be played on a simple smartphone, leaving the calculation to server farms in the cloud.
Tencent is a name that is less known in Europe compared to Electronic Arts or Ubisoft, and yet this Chinese giant is the owner of Riot Games (League of Legends), the publisher of PUBG Mobile and a major shareholder of Epic Games (Fortnite) and Supercell (Clash of Clans, Clash Royale).
To offer Tencent Instant Play, the name of the service, the giant has also teamed up with Intel, which is no longer being presented.
Google will not be the only one holding a major conference at the GDC, the Game Developer Conference. Tencent will also be on hand to talk about video game streaming from the cloud.
On the event page, we can read that Tencent will present, with Intel, streaming solutions for PC and Android games. The GDC is above all a professional fair which, as its name suggests, focuses on game development. Tencent hopes to attract development studios and explain how to use its solutions to join its streaming game catalog.
The firm will be able to rely on its strong presence in the Chinese market to convince.
