Google Stadia announced a plan for 100 games later this year. The news comes on the heels of news that the company was closing its game studio for the platform. Google’s own community blog had more details, but this indicates a renewed effort to make the cloud gaming platform a major player for years to come. There are definitely still some issues to solve, but addressing where the timeline is for more games will be a huge boost. Complaints about the set of experiences available on Stadia were common near launch. FIFA 21, Judgment and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero all will head to the streaming platform. So that adds much-needed variety to what Google is planning in this space. Time will tell if all these releases reverse their luck.
Google Stadia boss Phil Harrison also spoke about the decision to shut down its first-party efforts on the corporate blog.
“We launched Stadia with the goal of making your favorite games instantly available wherever you want to play them. With the recent successful launch of Cyberpunk 2077 on Stadia, gaming on all types of devices including iOS, the growth of our list of YouTube integrations, and our global expansions, it is clear that Stadia’s technology has been proven and is working great. scale, “he told fans.” Having games streamed to any screen is the future of this industry, and we will continue to invest in Stadia and its underlying platform to deliver the best cloud gaming experience for our partners and the gaming community. This has been Stadia’s vision from the beginning. “
Harrison continued: “In 2021, we are expanding our efforts to help game developers and publishers take advantage of our platform technology and deliver games directly to their players. We see an important opportunity to work with partners looking for a gaming solution based on the advanced technical infrastructure and tools of the Stadia platform. We believe this is the best way to turn Stadia into a long-term sustainable company that helps grow the industry. “
