Assuming it’s still alive by that time, Google Stadia could be facing some serious competition on the cloud-gaming front in 2020.

“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 job posting this month showed. And in at least one other job posting, the company said it wants to “drive innovative new use cases like machine vision and game streaming.”
