Google’s Cloud gaming service Stadia’s upcoming unveil would include price reveal and other information such as game titles, the media has reported.
Details including pricing, game announcements and launch info for the new game-streaming service will be shared this summer, according to a tweet from Stadia’s Twitter handle, the CNET reported late on Friday.
Google unveiled its Cloud gaming service at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March.
The platform is essentially a Cloud-based infrastructure where game developers would be able to design and write games to run directly on the Internet giant’s hardware at data centres.
After announcing a fresh investment of $600 million in expanding its data centre in Oklahoma, Google has now decided to invest $1 billion for 20,000 homes in the Bay Area in San Francisco.
“Today we’re announcing an additional $1 billion investment in housing across the Bay Area. Over the next 10 years, we’ll repurpose at least $750 million of Google’s land, most of which is currently zoned for office or commercial space, as residential housing,” Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday.
The project is aimed at supporting the development of at least 15,000 new homes at all income levels in the Bay Area, including housing options for middle and low-income families.
“We’ll establish a $250 million investment fund so that we can provide incentives to enable developers to build at least 5,000 affordable housing units across the market,” Pichai said.
In addition to the increased supply of affordable housing, the search engine giant has also announced to give $50 million in grants through Google.org to nonprofits focused on the issues of homelessness and displacement.
“This builds on the $18 million in grants we’ve given to help address homelessness over the last five years, including $3 million we gave to the newly opened SF Navigation Center and $1.5 million to affordable housing for low income veterans and households in Mountain View,” Pichai added.
