Google Games on the way?
Google are advertising a position for a product manager under the heading of “games” at oresent, could a Google Games section be on the way?
The job is listed under “Product Manager, Games – Mountain View” and the job listing describes a “Rare opportunity to grow a brand-new business – Games at Google!”.
It goes on to say that Google is on the hunt for “a strategic, technical and game-loving Product Manager to drive Google’s gaming strategy. Designing a great user experience and building out key partnerships” that will influence “Google’s social platform as you work directly with a critical set of early adopters [and] game developers”, hinting that we could be seeing a gaming platform tied in with social networking.
So what on earth are Google doing? It looks like they are going to dip their fingers into yet another pot. Could this possibly be something to go along side Google’s Chrome OS? All we can say is just please don’t make anything like those awful Facebook games, please Google!
Whatever the search giant is up to we will be keeping a close eye on them.
