Amazon Will Launch A AWS-Based Cloud Gaming Service As Early As 2020

Amazon has enough resources to complete its own Cloud Gaming Service mission by leaps and bounds.

We’ve witnessed various battlefields within the tech industry: media-sharing, social networking, and cloud computing. Now, it’s time for the gaming segment. Earlier this month, Google started rolling out a brand-new service called Google Stadia, based on cloud gaming technology. The search giant then faces stiff competitions with numerous players like PlayStation, Valve, Nintendo, and even Microsoft or Nvidia. Recent news teased that another big name is joining the fast track and it seems to threaten Google’s gaming service a lot - Amazon.

The services will run on the AWS-based cloud.

As per CNET, Amazon’s likely to launch its own cloud gaming service as early as 2020. It’s not clueless as the company has updated its job listing to look for employees to work on a ‘new initiative’ with the AWS team. Previously, The Verge also found a job listing for a senior position of “Principal Product Leader”. Along with creating the service, Amazon is also said to merge it with Twitch like the way Google has done with Stadia and YouTube.

It'll also be in a close tie with Twitch.

The future of Amazon-branded gaming service looks prospective. Up to now, both Twitch and AWS are famous platforms owned by the tech giant, spreading all around the world with massive popularity. While the live-streaming platform is well-known amongst the gamer community (even with amateurs), the cloud service of Amazon has been a potent infrastructure for the business in the Internet era. Due to these factors, Amazon has enough resources to complete the mission by leaps and bounds.

Google Stadia's games.

As for Google, the company already released Google Stadia in 14 countries, offering a library of 22 game titles. Though we didn’t find too many bad reactions in this initial stage, it’ll take time to evaluate how well and effectively the service will exactly perform.
