Google Stadia, which was opened in 2019, is closing the game studio where first-party games are developed. There will be only third party games now.
Bad news was shared from Google Stadia, which allowed us to stream games. The company is closing its game development division.
According to the statement made yesterday evening, internal video game development studios connected to Google Stadia are shutting down. Of course, this does not mean that the game will not come out. From now on, Stadia will not release games specific to its platform. It will only try to bring third-party games, ie games developed by other companies, to their platforms.
Unfortunately, 150 employees will be affected as a result of this shutdown, according to Kotaku. However, Google announced that it will find new positions at the company for those who are unemployed. In addition, as a result of the shutdown, game producer Jade Raymond, who was transferred from Ubisoft, left the company.
Google Stadia, which was launched in 2019, was one of the first to play games by streaming. However, unfortunately, it is a fact that it has been stagnant since its release and has not been able to deliver what is desired. On the contrary, GeForce Now became a platform that brought more content and remained on the agenda. We hope to hear good news from Stadia in the future. It should be noted that Stadia is not open to use in our country.
