After the public announcement of the closure of Stadia Games & Entertainment, ongoing reports revealed more details about the studio’s work. Obviously, Stadia’s now cancelled first-party projects include a multiplayer action game called “Frontier”, which is a sequel to “The Adventures of Savage Planet 2” and an exclusive game made by the legendary Kojima.
Update 2/28: A Google representative is working with Gaming radar Said that the VGC report was “inaccurate and reported that the rumors were factual,” and added that the report’s claims about Kojima and Suzuki Yu’s “project” were incorrect, and that Google did not “have anything with Kojima or Yu,” Nor did it announce anything “Suzuki.”
Report from Video Game Chronicle The claim revealed some of the major ongoing projects of Stadia Games & Entertainment (SG&E).
First of all, Google’s game studio apparently has a major action multiplayer game in its work, code-named “Frontier”. According to reports, the team that developed the game was led by Francois Pelland and former producers of Splinter Cell and Assassin’s Creed (Syndicate). Little is known about the game, but the team researching the game only learned of the cancellation in February (probably on the day of its launch).
In addition, Google’s acquisition of Typhoon Studios is for the sequel to the popular “Journey to the Barbarian Planet”, which debuted on Stadia this month. Obviously, the game has fully animated animation scenes and is “more ambitious” in scale. Similarly, the team here only learned of the cancellation of the project when it was publicly announced.
Stadia Games & Entertainment also cooperates with some third-party studios to develop exclusive games for the Stadia platform. For some time, it has been known that Harmonix has an exclusive cooperation with SG&E, and it is clear that the music game is “actually completed.”Respond to VGC The report noted that the CEO of Harmonix claimed that the game has not been cancelled and also denied rumors that the game is facing music licensing issues. The title still seems to be released, even if it eventually appears on another platform, and Steve Janiak said:
Although Google has changed its strategy, we are still very excited about the work Stadia has done. If the project is not released for Stadia, we will take it to other platforms
Finally, the report also mentioned that Google is cooperating with Kojima Productions, the studio behind the occasional horror games “Death Stranding”, “Silent Hill” and “Metal Gear.” Obviously, the studio wants to innovate in the field of cloud gaming, but Phil Harrison, vice president of Stadia Blocked The project was exposed from the very beginning. It is worth noting that Hideo Kojima said last summer that he was “very angry” at the cancellation of a major project, but it is unclear whether Harrison blocked that project.
Obviously, Google has carried out many major projects on SG&E, which will only increase the confusion that the company decides to stop using the product before all these projects are close to completion. If everything becomes different.
