Future of Android Mobile Gaming Apps
Google is notoriously known for creating multiple projects to achieve the same task. This is a common practice in gaming. Court documents revealed that an Android and Google Play-focused Mobile Apps “Games Future,” which appears to be running simultaneously with Stadia, was announced today.
Android Mobile Apps “Games Future” refers to an internal presentation of “Google Confidential” made public in response to the Epic Games and Apple lawsuit. It was discovered by The Verge and is dated October 2020, created by the “Google Play” division, and provides a roadmap for what the company hopes to achieve in gaming by 2025 at a high level. It will not only take a portion of the lucrative $35-50 Billion industry but also “avoid erosion in mobile.”
The context of the Android focus is vital because it provides an insight into the document’s originator. Google’s vision is to be the platform where developers can publish their titles. It will then make these games available on all its platforms and devices.

For all platforms while adding universal controller support to Smart Displays and televisions. Google has yet to officially announce this effort.
