The popular search engine and internet giant of many internet services, Google, is entering the gaming market.
Google’s job board posting for Mountain View CA, one of Google’s headquarters, is looking for a “Games for Google” product manager to “drive Google’s gaming strategy.”
Rare opportunity to grow a brand-new business – Games at Google! We are looking for a strategic, technical and game-loving Product Manager to drive Google’s gaming strategy. You will design strategies for game distribution and discovery, player identity, game mechanics, and more.
The job posting describes the development of a “social platform” suggesting it’ll be more of a web based casual games on the Chrome store or Android. It’s not likely to any games on the console but still difficult to tell at this point.
Google has created many useful and innovative products and having another game developer cannot hurt. I can’t wait to see what Google’s plans are for the gaming industry.
