Amazon Game Streaming: Is Project Tempo streaming platform coming this year?

Amazon might be one of the biggest companies in the world, but it's continuing its march into videogames with a game streaming service, allegedly code-named Project Tempo.

The world's largest retailer is already developing multiple titles, but a new report from the New York Times suggests that it is also working on streaming technology for games.

An early version is apparently nearing an announcement, but with recent COVID-19 events, there's a good chance it may not debut until next year.

Amazon already has three games in development, and two are due out in May 2020. Crucible, a squad-based shooter, and New World, an MMO, are both expected in the coming weeks.

Expect some kind of Twitch integration coming soon, with Amazon owning the popular live stream platform.

Mike Frazzini, Amazon's Vice President of game services and studios previously said "We love this idea that you have a player, a streamer and a viewer all sharing in this synchronous interactive environment of Twitch," in an interview with the New York Times.
