Tencent And Logitech Collaborating On Gaming Handheld

The new handheld device is set to be released later this year

The announcement was made via a tweet and blog post that Chinese company Tencent and Logitech G will be teaming up to produce a cloud gaming handheld device dubbed the Logitech G (for now).

The handheld device will support numerous cloud gaming services and is set to be released by the end of 2022.

The announcement tweet stated:

“We’re thrilled to announce an official partnership with Tencent Games to bring a cloud gaming handheld to market later this year that will support multiple cloud gaming services.”

More details on the device were released via a blog post that stated:

“Logitech G and Tencent Games share a mutual vision of the future of gaming and are committed to ensuring the quality of experience comes together seamlessly to deliver on the exciting promise of gaming from the cloud. Cloud gaming utilizes data centre servers to stream video games to consumers. There’s no need to download or install PC or console games. Instead, games are rendered and played on remote servers, and users interact with them locally on their devices.”

general manager of Tencent Games Smart Solution Innovation Lab Daniel Wu stated:

“Logitech G’s leadership in PC and console gaming gear make them an ideal partner to help us realize the vision of bringing a better gaming experience to gamers around the globe. Today marks the start of a new opportunity for our companies to further push the frontiers of gaming devices.”

Ujesh Desai, general manager of Logitech G said:

”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.”

Steam Deck in all its glory

Unfortunately, no details of the actual device’s aesthetics or any technical information has been released yet which adds an air of mystery to the new device ahead of its release later this year.

We will have to wait and see what the new handheld will offer as most smartphones these days can be considered “handheld game streaming devices” and the Steam Deck having been released in February this year, which was a huge hit. The Nintendo Switch will also be something to compete with which won’t be an easy task as it has become a much-loved gaming platform.

So, the question is what new features will the “Logitech G” offer and what will the overall look of the handheld device be?

There are exciting times ahead, and we will keep our ears open for any hints of new information about this new handheld. Since it is scheduled to be released this year, there will undoubtedly be information about it shortly.
