Rumours

Amazon game streaming service allegedly launching in 2020

An Amazon game streaming service will be intertwined with Twitch and will launch in 2020, a new report suggests.

An initial report from The Information has been supported by a new report from CNET which suggests that amazon will announce the streaming service ahead of launch next year.

The report furthers that Amazon’s AWS cloud service will power the streaming service, and that it will be integrated with Twitch like Google’s Stadia service is with YouTube.

The reports also reference Amazon’s own admissions that it is working on a streaming service.

“We believe the evolution that began with arcade communities a quarter at a time, growing to the live streams and e-sports of today, will continue to a future where everyone is a gamer and every gamer can create, compete, collaborate and connect with others at massive scales,” one Amazon job posting this month read.

We’ll have more on Amazon’s game streaming service as news becomes available.
