According to the partner site code update, Valve might be working on a Steam Cloud Gaming system to compete with Microsoft and Google.
We all know that cloud gaming services are the next big thing. Although the exact features for each service differ, Microsoft, Google, Nvidia, and Playstation are working on cloud gaming services. Now we have some evidence that gaming giant Valve also might be working on a Steam Cloud gaming service.
Steam Cloud Gaming Addendum
According to Steam Database, which tracks the changes to Steam and to Valve’s games, Valve’s website for partners asks them to agree to the “Steam Cloud Gaming Addendum.” Steam Database revealed the new code on its GitHub page. Valve didn’t make any official statement about the service, so we will have to wait and see.
Unfortunately, the name of the service doesn’t reveal a lot about the service’s details. But obviously, Valve will be involved in a competition with Google’s Stadia or Microsoft xCloud services. Users can already stream games with Steam Remote Play, Steam Link, and Steam Link Anywhere services but those require your own PC to act as the server.
