The cloud gaming market is about to get more crowded as Amazon is the latest company with major plans. For several years now, Amazon is investing a lot of money in video gaming. The web shopping and cloud computing giant wants to publish its own games and now NY Times reports about Project Tempo, an effort to launch a new cloud gaming platform.
The internet giant said it intended to release its first original big-budget game, an ambitious science-fiction shooter called Crucible, in May after several coronavirus-related delays. It is also developing a full-fledged cloud gaming platform under the code name Project Tempo. And it is working on new casual games that broadcasters on its popular Twitch streaming service can play alongside viewers in real time.

The push is Amazon’s most significant investment in original entertainment since it became a major producer of streaming series and films over the last decade. Amazon is also aiming at strategic rivals like Google and Microsoft, which have expanded their video game offerings.
In May, we'll see two video game releases from Amazon. This includes New World, a MMO set in an alternate 17th century, as well as Crucible, a high-budget sci-fi shooter.
