The first original games studio for Stadia will launch in Montreal, Canada. This was announced today in order to “produce exclusive, original content across a diverse portfolio of games in all your favorite genres. Stadia is designed to be one destination for all the ways people play games—and Montréal is where we’re going to start building them.” This is noted by Jade Raymond, VP and Head, Stadia Games & Entertainment.
If you’re not familiar with this service, it will be from Google and provide the option to stream games to any device you own through a Chrome enabled browser. It’s a new way to play games that brings a number of high quality titles from the biggest publishers and developers in a high quality.
They’re hiring for this development house and this was another part of the release statement. “Just as Stadia intends to change the way games are accessed and experienced by players, we want to change the way games are made. That starts with our culture. Stadia is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace; these diverse perspectives will shape the games we create together. We’re committed to building an environment that will empower the developers who work at Stadia to create new, unique gaming experiences.”
This should be an interesting service, and this support will help grow the platform with original content. You can check out our game hubs for additional coverage on the industry or read about the release, pricing within Canada below.
