Following the release of a patent showcasing Google-developer console controllers, the company has announced the “future of gaming” will arrive at this month’s Game Developers Conference. The event was previously announced last month and now Google’s Twitter handle showcases a graphic of various environment that harkens to typical video game locales, like dungeons and sci-fi settings.

Although currently the teaser doesn’t reveal much, many speculate the company will announce a game streaming service that builds off its Project Stream tests with Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey last year. It allows high-end titles to be played directly from the Google Chrome browser. Many also believe the tech will incorporate NVidia’s GeForce Now, which was on display during CES 2018.

Google’s GDC keynote will take place March 19 at 1 p.m. EST via livestream, available above. We will update this post as information is revealed.

In other gaming news, Fortnite debuted the new “Baller” vehicle and changes to matchmaking in new season 8 update.
