Google Shuts Down Stadia In-House Game Development

Google is no longer competing with PlayStation and the Xbox, announcing Monday that it’s shutting down the division of Stadia that was dedicated to making exclusive games.

 

“Given our focus on building on the proven technology of Stadia as well as deepening our business partnerships, we’ve decided that we will not be investing further in bringing exclusive content from our internal development team SG&E, beyond any near-term planned games,” Stadia vice president and general manager Phil Harrison said in a statement.

Now, rather than try to rival the video game industry’s big players, Stadia will partner with them. Harrison said the division will expand “our efforts to help game developers and publishers take advantage of our platform technology and deliver games directly to their players.” Stadia will continue to provide titles from other developers, but will no longer supplement them with its own slate of games as Google originally planned.

Seems like the first major nail in the coffin, and now they'll probably just wait another year or so for the small user base to die off completely before shutting it down. Not only do gamers generally not want google in this market, but the way they structured the pricing made absolutely no sense. Stadia has clearly been another google glass from day one.

This is the first step to a failed project I think, it never really took off. I just honestly do not think the infrastructure is there for the masses and frankly this has someway to compete against the console market, it certainly was never on the PC gaming level that is for sure.
