Google Stadia hasn’t been having the best time as of late. The cloud service from the big G has apparently been in rocky waters for a while and a new report from Business Insider suggests the company is deprioritizing the console.
According to that report, Google is looking to make deals with third-party companies to use the Stadia tech on their own streaming platforms. And, the report suggests, a couple of companies have already been approached.
Those companies? Bungie and Capcom. The idea being that the front-end would be the third-party developer’s, while the streaming backend would be controlled by Stadia tech.
Stadia as she goes
Google has responded on Twitter in the following manner –
The thread goes on to say that there are 100 more games on the way to the platform over the next 12 months, and that “more feature goodness” is coming soon too.
What that actually means in practice we’ll have to see. But this feels like another cloud-gaming service going the way of a lot of others we’ve seen fall by the wayside in recent years.
