Think again, Google Stadia is still alive and well (according to Google).

The Google Stadia cloud gaming service launched in November 2019 has been refined with numerous updates over the months to optimize the service, but also to add various features. In addition to its architecture, the service has of course also expanded in terms of games, as many excellent titles have been around since their introduction. This was the case with Cyberpunk 2077 late last year or more recently with Resident Evil Village.

Google wants to reassure Stadia

However, since the beginning of 2021, Google Stadia has been struggling to convince players, mainly due to the departure of many managers, including Jade Raymond, and the closure of various in-house studios. However, the Google site recently claimed it would bring more than 100 new games out this year, and various statements recently signed by Nate Ahearn on behalf of Google point in that direction.


“I would tell skeptics to take note of how we continue the conversation, develop the Stadia Makers program and work with renowned studios such as Capcom, EA, Square Enix, Ubisoft …”, this explains last. He also insists that Google take extra care not to put any pressure on the independent studios of the Stadia Makers program.

At a time when the “crisis” of many teams is causing a scandal, Google would like to remind that “the aim of the program is to support the addition of Stadia as the launch platform for their game, not to put pressure on them or the studios make it harder “.

So, according to Google, there is no reason not to see a bright future for the Stadia platform, despite the fact that the American giant still refuses to share the smallest number in terms of the number of subscribers to the service. Even so, Google Stadia is still alive 18 months after its first launch and, according to Google, no offense to critics of the service.
