400 games for Google Stadia
Jack Buser, responsible for Google Stadia at Google says that more than 400 games for Google Stadia are in loop. Buser did this in an interview with GameSyrup. Unfortunately, the man has not released any information about those games. We do know that the games will appear on the game streaming service from 2021 and later.
Buser wants to use these numbers to show that Google intends to invest a lot in the service. Some Google services do not have a long life, so users do not want to burn their fingers. That can also create a vice circle: Google launches a new service, people don’t use it, Google sees that it is not popular, people complain about a lack of new functions, Google pulls the plug from the project. But Buser says that Google has plans until after 2023, so Google Stadia is probably here to stay.
Buser says the following about it in the interview.
We are looking many years out into the future. Gaming is one of the biggest businesses at Google… Which is why you see us investing so much time and energy to support all these hundreds of developers building all these games. We have a very exciting year ahead of us. And, in fact, we have a very exciting many years ahead of us.
The amount of exclusive content must in any case increase in the coming months. The man also says that games are coming that can offer more than the current generation of game consoles, because those games “are not bound by local hardware”. Buser did not say exactly what that means. Recently it was called a position like Crowd Choice introduced, with which viewers of streamers can determine what someone does in a game.
The games that are coming are made by the internal developers at Google, but also by partners such as Harmonix. This is a developer known for his work on the Guitar Hero and Rock Band series, games that focus on reenacting songs with and without friends. In addition, Google has also brought in a lot of talent in the form of Jade Raymond (former Ubisoft and Electronic Arts) and Shannon Studstill (ex-Sony Santa Monica).
