Amazon is reportedly working on a game streaming platform. Dubbed "Project Tempo", there's currently no scheduled release date for the service.
The company has created Relentless, a video games studio, which is due to release its first game, a science fiction story called "Crucible", next month. Amazon will also launch 'New World', a 'massively multiplayer online' game in which thousands of players occupy a persistent fantasy realm based on an alternate 17th century. "New World" was created by a separate Amazon game studio in Irvine, California, built after the company acquired Double Helix Games in 2014.
"The big picture is about trying to take the best of Amazon and bringing it to games," Mike Frazzini, Amazon's vice president for game services and studios, told the NY Times. "We have been working for a while, but it takes a long time to make games, and we're bringing a lot of Amazon practices to making games."
When it comes to cloud-based gaming, Amazon will have to compete with Microsoft and Google. Both of them already have their feet firmly planted in the space, Microsoft with Project xCloud and Google with Stadia.
