  • Amazon travaillerait sur son propre service de jeux vidéo en streaming

Néanmoins, Amazon devrait compter deux nouveaux concurrents en 2020, avec la présence de la PS5 et de la Xbox Scarlet, encore non annoncées.

Alors que le cloud-gaming prend de plus en plus d'importance dans l'univers du jeu vidéo, et que selon toute vraisemblance, ce sera la norme pour toutes les consoles d'ici une dizaine d'années, Amazon annonce que lui aussi veut se lancer dans ce secteur. À l'occasion d'un test réalisé durant l'automne, Google avait notamment permis aux joueurs de tester gratuitement une version d' Assassin's Creed Odyssey animée par ses serveurs en 1080p/60fps et accessible directement depuis Google Chrome. Cette plate-forme, aussi hypothétique soit-elle, serait prévue pour 2020 et permettrait à ses abonnés de profiter de son catalogue de jeu sans avoir à télécharger quoi que ce soit au préalable. Ajoutez à cela l'infrastructure considérable d'Amazon Web Service, et vous avez potentiellement un concurrent redoutable à Google et Microsoft, qui ont l'intention de concurrencer les Nvidia, Sony et autres Shadow déjà en place. Le cloud-gaming, c'est exactement la même chose, sauf qu'il faut une connexion internet bien plus puissante que Netflix. Pour le moment, Amazon n'a pas officialisé la date de sortie de son service mais d'après The Information, le géant américain est en pleine campagne de recrutement.

La rumeur d'une plateforme de streaming de jeux vidéo conçue par Amazon provient essentiellement d'une multitude d'offres d'emplois publiées dans le pays de l'Oncle Sam, à la recherche des meilleurs profils pour développer un business AAA (pour ceux qui ne le savent pas, il s'agit là de l'équivalent du blockbuster pour le dixième art).

Le mastodonte pourrait bien être une menace pour la concurrence car il affiche une belle expertise dans le milieu du cloud. De plus, la firme devrait avoir quelques connaissances en matière de streaming depuis le rachat de Twitch et le lancement d'Amazon Prime Vidéo. Donnez-nous votre avis dans les commentaires!
