This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, we discuss Stadia’s failure and why Google’s cloud gaming bet struggled from the start.
News of Stadia’s demise came as a shock to some – including many developers with titles just weeks after launch – but it still feels like it’s been on the cards for a while. After a rocky launch and the closure of Google’s internal game development studios, what future remains for Stadia? Eurogamer editor Martin Robinson shared his thoughts earlier today.
Could Stadia have been a success? What does all this mean for the preservation of the game? And if Google fails, with all its billions, what future does cloud gaming have elsewhere? Tom Phillips, Ed Nightingale and Liv Ngan share their thoughts.
