Google is betting heavily on its cloud-based gaming platform Stadia. In a blog post today, Jade Raymond, VP and Head of Stadia Games & Entertainment, announced that the tech giant is opening its first dedicated video game studio in Montréal, Canada. This Stadia Games and Entertainment’s studio has been set up to "produce exclusive, original content across a diverse portfolio of games in all your favorite genres". The company has also opened job positions for this new branch.
Google Stadia is planned to release this November and with this news, we can expect some exclusives to hit the platform in the near future. What would you like to play on the Stadia?
They could never produce something worth playing because the platform is not worth supporting. This is similar to Microsoft wanting windows to be completely online where the computers being sold do not have storage devices and so you would need to log on into your windows account to access your desktop online.
Normally this would be the kind of thing you line up years before launch so you can actually release with some decent exclusives. Showing off a 1000 player BR in the initial announcement instead of speculating about it would've turned heads.. Now the genre will be dead by the time they get something likethat out.
Yuh, I agree. But the person I quoted acted like people didn't want this service because "Google bad". So, I asked him, why should I choose Google Stadia, when Microsoft has a way better option at the moment? More devices, game pass, exclusives.
