Despite its ambitions, Google’s Stadia cross-platform cloud gaming service has not grown as fast as expected, let alone the game content library is still poor. In an effort to boost the project, Google has previously said it will directly manage its first gaming and entertainment studio in Montreal. Now, the tech giant has announced that it will open another Stadia gaming and entertainment studio in Playa Vista, California.
The new studio will be led by Shannon Studstill, a former head of Sony’s Santa Monica studio and executive of the “God of War” series. Her LinkedIn profile, which she worked for Sony for nine years, officially joined Google this month.
As for Playa Vista Studios, the focus will be on creating exclusive games for Stadia. Google says the games will feature new game mechanics, innovative play, and unique interaction models. It is hoped that, under the leadership of outstanding leadership, the work will achieve everyone’s expectations at an early date.
Of course, in Montreal, this means that the development of a batch of new Stadia games is just beginning, and we’ll still have to wait a while before we can officially play.
At the same time, there are reports that Google is not using enough money to introduce third-party games. Thus, in a short period of time, players have to endure the lack of game library.
