Google Launched Stadia Games and Entertainment First-Party Studio at GDC

One of the many big announcements from Google at GDC yesterday was the announcement of Stadia Games and Entertainment. Stadia Games is going to be Google’s first-party studio for games and Jade Raymond will be leading it.

Many gamers will know Raymond as a co-creator of Assassin’s Creed. During the reveal, Raymond explained that she will also be working with other developers.

As the head of Stadia Games and Entertainment, I will not only be bringing first party game studios to reimagine the new generation of games. Our team will also be working with external developers to make all of the bleeding edge Google technology you’ve seen here today available to partner studios big and small. We are committed to going down a bold path, learning what is working best, and sharing key tools and tech so that we can take games to the next level together.

The launch of Stadia and Stadia Games are a big step for Google. Now, gamers will be able to stream video games to the least powerful devices they have as long as it has Google Chrome. That’s nuts! I’m excited to learn more about Stadia, and I’m holding my breath until I hear about pricing.
