GOG Galaxy 2.0 is looking to be an absolute game-changer in the ever-tumultuous PC game launcher department, being the first officially-sanctioned all-inclusive game launcher that's been announced. Better yet, it's going to support both PC and console games, somehow.
If you're annoyed by the sheer number of launchers you juggle just to keep track of your ever-growing game library, GOG Galaxy 2.0 is something you're definitely going to want to look into. While you will still, sadly, must have Steam, Origin, UPlay and others installed, you'll no longer have to alt-tab them at all.
Furthermore, it seems that not only will GOG Galaxy 2.0 track player progression across all of the relevant PC game launchers (and self-contained executive files), but it will also implement console functionality as well.
While we're not sure yet how this will work, CDPR seem to have it figured out: "The technology, which was publicly unveiled on 22 May 2019, provides a single point of access to all purchased games, enabling communication with buddies and tracking their progress regardless of their preferred gaming platforms."
Furthermore, they're also careful to mention the client's console game implementation: "GOG Galaxy 2.0 will be available to all PC and console gamers, extending beyond the GOG.com user community. It provides a way to overcome the encroaching fragmentation of the gaming market, which is characterized by the emergence of new digital distribution channels and platform-exclusive releases."
While there exist open-source projects of similar scope, such as Playnite, none of them can go so far as to claim console game progression tracking, so there's lots to look forward to when it comes to GOG Galaxy 2.0. You can already sign up for the eventual closed beta on the official website, so go ahead if you're intrigued by the prospect!
