According to MobileSyrup’s interview with Jack Buser, Game Director of Google Stadia, there are currently about 200 studios creating 400 games for Google Stadia. These new projects are slated for release over the next few years – not all of them will launch in 2021.
“To be honest, my team is almost done with 2021, – said the head in an interview with reporters. – We are already thinking about 2022, this is our goal. And 2023 is what we are striving for ”. Mr Bazer said that Google will share more information on when new games will be released in the future.
Google has been playing catch-up since Stadia debuted a year ago. Ahead of launch, executives promised Stadia will have several unique and ambitious features, including 4K support, various social media and streamer capabilities, and a large library of games. However, many features were added only a few months later, and some are still missing.
While Google has added over 100 games to Stadia over the past year, there is not a lot of high-end titles to choose from, especially when compared to Microsoft’s xCloud platform. Nevertheless, Google is working on adding popular interactive entertainment to its library – it already contains, for example, Doom Eternal, Borderlands 3 and Hotline Miami, with Cyberpunk 2077 coming soon.
In addition, Google has two of its own studios in Montreal and Los Angeles, an exclusive deal with Harmonix, and a number of experienced developers and producers who control everything. These include Stadia head Phil Harrison, Stadia head of games and entertainment Jade Raymond, and Playa Vista head Shannon Studstill. In late 2019, Google also acquired Typhoon Studios, the developer of the charming sci-fi exploration game Journey to the Savage Planet.
The company has yet to unleash the full power of its streaming gaming arsenal, and according to Jack Bazer, Google is not going to give up on promoting Stadia, but is only increasing its momentum. His comments came amid a slew of deals aimed at attracting audiences to Stadia: both a pre-launch on iOS and a $ 99 free Stadia Premiere Edition for YouTube Premium subscribers by the end of the year.
