Google confirms once again that it will continue to support Google Stadia streaming service.
They do so in a tweet directed at the consumer asking if the service will be shutting down soon. “Stadia will not be discontinued. Rest assured, we are always working to bring more great games to the platform and Stadio Pro,” is the answer to the question.
Last month Google has already claimed that Stadia is still “alive”. Stadia developer and chief marketing officer Nate Ahern reported this to GamesIndustry.biz at the time. “We’re on track to launch over 100 new games on Stadia this year, and we’ll continue to make sure Stadia is a great place to play games on the devices you already own.”
Then Ahern turned to the skeptics again. “I’d like to tell all those who don’t believe in it to pay attention to how we put our words into action as we develop Stadia Makers and partner with AAA studios like Capcom, EA, Square Enix, Ubisoft, and more.”
When Google Stadia was released in 2019, it was not well received by gamers and critics. The cloud service’s reputation was subsequently damaged when the company decided to stop developing in-house games for the platform and share Stadia’s technology with third parties. Jade Raymond, the creator of the first Assassin’s Creed games, was one of the people to leave Stadia. Then he founded Haven Studios. This studio was later acquired by Sony.
