Nate Ahearn, head of marketing at Google Stadia, explained cloud gaming services in an interview. Emphasizing that more than 100 new games will come to the platform, Ahearn said that with the formation of Stadia Makers, they aim to bring games from all platforms to Stadia.
A few years ago, Google announced its cloud gaming platform, which is called “Stadia”. The revolutionary service for the video game world allows gamers to play through cloud systems, so there’s no need for equipment like a game console or powerful PC. The company even planned to develop AAA games to make this service even more impressive.
However, the events that took place with the targets did not match. Less than two years after launching Stadia, the company decided to close “Stadia Games & Entertainment”, which will develop games for Stadia. In addition, the loss of the likes of Jade Raymond and John Justice, who were senior executives of Stadia, has caused major injuries, although it is not obvious to Google. Nate Ahearn, chief marketing officer, said the service is alive and well. Google, it seems, is trying to sweep its big problems under the carpet.
More than 100 new games will be added to Google Stadia in 2021, Ahearn said, adding that they are working to make Stadia perfect for all players. In this context, the Stadia executive underlines that they are cooperating with the giant names of the sector such as EA, Capcom, Ubisoft, and Square Enix, and emphasizes that they continue to turn their promises to players into action.
Ahearn mentions that they have established an organization called “Stadia Makers” to grow Stadia, noting that the developers they have bought here are intertwined with all platforms, helping studios to host more games in Stadia by making their work easier. It seems that Google intends to make the most of 2021, when it is full of high hopes, and to reach many more players with much more games.
