According to people familiar with the subject, Amazon is working on a game streaming platform similar to Google’s Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now. The company wants to use its cloud technologies in something different and also be competitive in the games market.
An interesting fact is that Amazon has been working on a game called Crucible since 2014 and with this game the company is going to bring in another game called New World, which fits into the genre of massive multiplayer online game.
The game was due to roll out last month but was delayed until May due to the coronavirus outbreak. Now we don’t know if the new platform will launch alongside New World, but we do know that it’s called Project Temp and it’s also working closely with Twitch to develop interactive games where streamers can interact with its viewers as part of the game mechanics.
