The Next Frontier:
We are at a new inflection point in games. Worldwide, people deeply want to engage with new experiences that grant their wishes. The benchmarks set with prior mobile, PC, and console models start to dissolve when gameplay, community, and new technology are tuned with a glove-like fit. The overnight success of Pokemon GO visibly resets the expectations on AR, but there’s also a rich diversity of new peaks achieved on mobile just beneath the surface. At the same time, new VR platforms are launching, promising new experiences that can only be had in VR. In this keynote, Jamil Moledina explains how Google thinks about and works with these trends, and how the company is partnering with game creators to explore the next frontier.
