Google Stadia is not about going quietly at night despite a host of recent changes that suggest the platform may be out of favor with people in Mountain View.
Nate Ahrn, a key figure with developer marketing at Stadia, says the platform aims to share expensive hardware requirements, “living and well.”
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Arnurn reaffirmed the company’s commitment to the platform, promising to falsify non-believers predicting imminent demise for the platform cloud gaming rival.
“We’re on our way to launching more than 100 new games on Stadia in 2021, and we’re continuing to make Stadia a great place to play games on devices you already own,” he says. Huh. “I will tell any non-believers how we want our words to continue in action, as we are growing with the Stadia Makers program and AAA studios like Capcom, EA, Square Enix, Ubisoft and others.”
Several suggestions were made for Stadia’s future when the company announced that it was shutting down SG&E Studios, the first party to be accused of creating exclusive games for Google-based gamers to join the best Stadia games. . Gaming veteran Jade Raymond, the studio head, has since started a new studio with Sony.
Google is now shifting to make it easier to include Google Stadia in its launch plans, while continuing to work with two independent studios will build the game for the company.
“We are on our way to more than 100 new games starting at Stadia in 2021, and we are already making a great place to play games on the devices you already have,” he said. “I will tell any non-believers how we want our words to continue in action, as we are growing with the Stadia Makers program and AAA studios like Capcom, EA, Square Enix, Ubisoft and others.”
The changes have come after John Justice left, with Stadia being the team’s chief executive. He has now been replaced by co-founder Dove Jimmering, who has now been confirmed by Google.
Last week we (well,) suggested that Stadia’s demise is inevitable, but Google is certainly suggesting that it is up for the fight.
