We all know that Google’s anti-consumer service known as Stadia has third-party support much like Destiny 2, Borderlands 3, Rage 2, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, and the soy boy’s wet dream Wolfenstein: Youngblood. However, Google is looking to bolster its streaming service by building up first-party Stadia studios around the world.
According to the report that website wccftech.com published, first-party devs are working on exclusive releases for Stadia. The publication site in question highlights Stadia games and entertainment boss Jade Raymond saying:
“We have a plan that includes building out a few different first-party studios, and also building up the publishing org to ship exclusive content created by indie devs and other external partners.”
The website continues, stating that Google has announced that Montreal, Canada is the place for the first of these studios.
Later, the site cites Raymond promising that these new studios will deliver “original content across a diverse portfolio of games in all your favorite genres.”
Here’s the list of words stringed together by Raymond about Stadia having a long term first-party plan (which is likely false), and how exclusive content for the anti-consumer service is in the pipeline as we speak:
“It is a long term view that Google is taking. For a big bet and a huge new IP that’s going to fully leverage the cloud, it may be several years. But we do have quite a few exclusive games in the works that will demonstrate some of the exciting things about the platform all along the path. It won’t be four years before gamers get to see the new exclusive, exciting content. There will be some coming out every year, and more and more each year.”
If Google Stadia is around in the next four years, I’d be shocked. However, and assuming it lasts that long come 2023, we will see first-party exclusives published in-house and developed for Stadia each year.
Although you won’t find any sexy time games on Google’s streaming service and only current year puritan activities, Stadia is going to become available to the wild on November 19th, 2019, across 14 countries.
