Google introduced it was ending in-house game development for Stadia at the beginning of February, and a variety of the cancelled video games and initiatives throughout the firm have been revealed, in keeping with a new report.
According to VGC, Google shut down a number of releases, starting from new video games already in growth, to offers with among the greatest names in the video games business. In the report, it’s said that Hideo Kojima, of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding fame, was in talks for an episodic horror game that might’ve been a Stadia unique, earlier than Google determined to not proceed. Yu Suzuki was one other creator in discussions for one thing printed on Stadia, the report says.
Two video games believed to have been in lively growth on the time of Google’s announcement have been a sequel to Journey to the Savage Planet, from developer Typhoon, and Frontier, a multiplayer game led by former Splinter Cell producer Francois Pelland. Both groups discovered about their cancellation similtaneously the information was being made public, the report states.
A music game by Harmonix was in the works for Stadia, and in a assertion, the studio says every thing remains to be going forward as deliberate, and new platforms will likely be thought-about if Google’s cloud gaming service is by some means nonviable. “While Google has shifted its strategy, we remain incredibly excited about what we’ve been working on for Stadia,” Steve Janiak, Harmonix CEO, mentioned, “and if the project isn’t released for Stadia we will take it to other platforms.”
We’ve contacted Kojima Productions, and Google, for remark. Another report from Bloomberg says Google was spending huge cash on netting main video games for Stadia, shelling out tens of hundreds of thousands for the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2.
