The beginnings of Google Stadia They have not been easy at all. Many thought that the closure of its internal development studios could lead to a goodbye, but the gigantic company has risen thanks to the support of third parties for its gaming platform.
Now, perhaps we are talking about an absolutely amazing maneuver. According to the portal Cloudygames, and in reference to a job posting from LinkedIn, Google could license Stadia and its tools to certain partners in the industry.
Knowing that streaming and services are the future of video games, Google would take a turn of the helm make Stadia a ” free ” platform, albeit only for certain companies. This is unconfirmed, although the offer description drops it … literally.
”We see an important opportunity to make our infrastructure and tools available to partners who want to build their own interactive streaming platforms. Our goal is to build a sustainable business that helps grow the industry through games and other interactive streaming applications.”, you can read in the description.
The offer refers to the position of Product Manager, and may be the next step in getting great support from third parties. We could already see it with Capcom or Sega, by including games like Resident Evil VII, Resident Evil Village or Judgment in Stadia.
Another clue came from last February, when Phil Harrison, vice president of Google, referenced a broader approach to Google Stadia. As we say, there is no official confirmation and at the moment it is just a rumor.
In case this is true, that means that certain Google industry partners they could use Stadia tools to bring their games to the cloud, as well as developing exclusives and apps … or even partnering directly with Google.
At the moment, Google Stadia is struggling to gain a foothold in the industry, along with Amazon Luna, and Before the reign of Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming. Is this rumor true? We will find out in the coming months.
