The Android TV platform is coming, several sources have confirmed that the platform will launch at Google I/O this week, but now an early ‘What’s New’ Changelog for game Riptide GP2 has again added weight to the discussion that Google will roll out the Android TV platform tomorrow.
Android Police were tipped by a reader who saw the update in their Google Play update for the game, and managed to snag a screenshot of the update which lists three features they’ve added to the game specifically for the platform :
- Support for Android TV!
- Split-screen mode (Android TV)
- Safe-zone adjustment screen (Android TV)
Aaron Burrell, the user who caught the leak, posted a screenshot of the What’s New section of his update to his Google+ page.
The update has since been pulled, which is a shame but definitely sends a message that Google is looking to go big with Android TV with gaming. Adding Riptide GP2, a fairly popular game as a launch title for the platform is a big win, hopefully they’ve lined up some just as big titles to co-incide with the launch, perhaps some Gameloft and EA games will be present as well? Now to hope that Google releases the Android TV platform world-wide immediately upon release.
