Logitech is partnering with Tencent on a portable cloud gaming device

Logitech has announced it is working on a portable cloud gaming device in partnership with Tencent Games, making it the latest entrant to the portable gaming market.

The device won’t be a direct competitor for the Steam Deck or Nintendo Switch, as it’s aimed at cloud gaming rather than on-device processing.

That means compatibility will be key. Logitech has confirmed that the device will at least work with Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce. Now when it launches later this year.

The launch date is a bit surprising as we are now in August and Logitech only just announced it without showing any pictures or any real details about the hardware.

However, the company has set up a website to sign up for updates about the device as they come out.

At the moment it seems to be called simply the Logitech G Gaming Handheld, but we can imagine that the name will change later on.

We expect to hear more about the device over the next few months if it does launch later this year, so keep your eyes peeled for more details.
