Google to Shut Down Internal Stadia Game Studio

Stadia GM and vice president Phil Harrison announced the closure of Stadia Games and Entertainment on Monday on the Stadia blog.

Creating best-in-class games from the ground up takes many years and significant investment, and the cost is going up exponentially. 

Instead, the company will be focusing on third-party games.

In 2021, we’re expanding our efforts to help game developers and publishers take advantage of our platform technology and deliver games directly to their players. We see an important opportunity to work with partners seeking a gaming solution all built on Stadia’s advanced technical infrastructure and platform tools. We believe this is the best path to building Stadia into a long-term, sustainable business that helps grow the industry.

Most of the current workers at Stadia Games and Entertainment will be moving on to new roles.
