    Google will no longer make games for Stadia

    (CNN Business)Google will stop making video games, less than two years after launching its highly publicized Stadia gaming platform.

    The company is shutting down Stadia Games and Entertainment (SG&E), its internal game development service, Phil Harrison, Stadia's vice president and GM, announced in a blog post Monday.

    "Creating best-in-class games from the ground up takes many years and significant investment, and the cost is going up exponentially," Harrison said. He added that the focus will now be on working with external developers to make their games available on Stadia.

    "Over the coming months, most of the SG&E team will be moving on to new roles," he said.

    Jade Raymond, the executive in charge of SG&E who previously worked at Sony (SNE), Electronic Arts (EA) and Ubisoft (UBSFF), will leave Google (GOOG) to "pursue other opportunities," Harrison added.

    Games released by the unit in collaboration with Google's partners include "Gylt", "Outcasters" and "Submerged: Hidden Depths." Stadia had also created studios to develop games in-house that will now be shut down. Google did not comment on how many employees will be impacted by the closure.
    Well, I'm surprised.

    Meh.

    Sega quit making systems, and only makes games. They're still around.

    I'd imagine Stadia can stick around selling everyone else's games.

    Cyberpunk plays pretty good on it.

    It's lasted longer than I thought it would, honestly. But.. yeah. Stadia was pretty much destined to fail.
    You remove a pair of oval ora-framed spectacles with pale grey lenses from in your ebon linen vest.

    You unfold the earpieces of your spectacles.

    You think to yourself, "Deal with it."

    They haven't said anything about stopping the Stadia service as a whole, they're just not making their own games for it and will license titles from other game providers.

    They start talking about Stadia ~14 minutes.

    Losing first party support is bad optics, no matter how you feel about the system. I don't think being a storefront for 3rd party games will be enough to keep it going, especially as other companies make moves in cloud gaming themselves.

    Annnnd shutting down.

    https://www.theverge.com/2022/9/29/2...g-january-2023

    Google is shutting down Stadia, its cloud gaming service. The service will remain live for players until January 18th, 2023. Google will be refunding all Stadia hardware purchased through the Google Store as well as all the games and add-on content purchased from the Stadia store. Google expects those refunds will be completed in mid-January.

    ...

    Google detailed some of the finer points of the shutdown in an FAQ. Refunds will automatically be made through the Google and Stadia stores, and you won’t have to return any hardware. Stadia Pro subscriptions will not be eligible for a refund, but you will not be charged during the shutdown period and can access games you might have redeemed as a Pro user until everything is wound down. Google has closed the Stadia store, so you can’t buy games or in-game transactions.
    Props for refunding the people who bought in though.

    Big ups to google for returning the $20
    The only rude person I met was a taxi driver in kagoshima. I was going from the train station to the ferry to take it over to an island and was showing him my papers and he was like "oh, climb mountain?" and I'm like "hai, yep!" and he made a muscle pose(bent arm, whatever you call it) laughed, and rubbed my belly.. like "oh, no, you fat american fuck, you no get up there", but whatever - Japhrimel
