In 2022, Logitech will release a handheld cloud gaming system

Later this year, a specialised cloud gaming handheld will be released by Logitech G in partnership with Tencent Games. In place of the traditional phone cases, the new gear will feature a standalone device with controls for cloud gaming services.

For the new device, Logitech announced a software partnership with Tencent Games of China. Additionally, it is collaborating with Nvidia’s GeForce Now and Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming services so that its product will support hundreds of top-tier PC and console games right out of the box. There are currently no definite answers on whether other cloud gaming services like Google Stadia and Amazon Luna would support the device.

Cloud-based gaming for AAA games is gradually gaining popularity, and now a major game accessory company plans to make a huge entry into this market. The venerable manufacturer of gaming and PC accessories, Logitech, today revealed intentions to introduce a handheld cloud gaming device.

General manager of Logitech G, explains why the company worked with Tencent Games: “As one of the leading global platforms for game development, publishing and operations, Tencent Games has been at the forefront of innovation and it’s why we partnered with them.”  “As someone that grew up playing video games, the idea of being able to stream and play AAA games almost anywhere is super exciting, and we can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on.”

A few months have passed since Valve debuted the Steam Deck handheld, which revolutionised the idea of playing PC games while on the road. The Steam Deck can run cloud games and isn’t dependent on your phone, although some people would prefer a less expensive alternative to the Steam Deck that can run cloud games. It appears that Logitech is making exactly that.
