References to streaming service reappear in the code

According to Google Stadia and xCloud, Valve could soon launch on the market with its own streaming service. At least this is indicated by new information in the data of a beta version of Steam. Corresponding rumors about a service had already appeared at the end of last year. So far, however, Valve has been reluctant to make official statements.

In the current beta version of the Steam client, references to a streaming service from Valve can be discovered again. Dataminer Pavel Djundik has this on Twitter approved. There are also indications of time-limited test phases. These are also said to be related to Steam Cloud Gaming. The service would then also seem to interact with the NVIDIA Cloud. To date, Valve has not yet commented on a possible competitor for Google Stadia.

Most recently, in November 2019, some notices appeared in the Steam code. With various offers such as Steam Link or Steam Remote Play, Valve is already in the streaming area. An in-house service like Google Stadia would not be an absurd idea for the company. Microsoft will soon get involved with xCloud in the streaming market.

The past few days have been up to 22 million players simultaneously on the Steam servers. Valve would thus already have a basis with many users who could be convinced of a possible streaming service. If there is new information on the subject, you will of course find it directly from us.
