Video Game streaming service Google Stadia is quickly becoming a major competitor for consoles and PC. The amount of money Google has made sure Stadia gets the best IPs on its side. Games like Destin and Cyberpunk are coming to Stadia. However, the community is still not as convinced as they should be at this point.
According to Pogosan, Assistant Director, Donkey Crew, Google Stadia has really pushed Cloud Gaming into the limelight. With the arrival of Cyberpunk 2077 and Destiny 2 it seems like streaming is primed to complete with traditional gaming platforms.
Cloud gaming has been around for quite a while now, but Google is definitely bringing it to a whole new level with Stadia. Seeing singleplayer giants like Cyberpunk 2077 and multiplayer classics like Destiny 2 available on the service makes it seems like streaming is on the path to becoming one of the regular ways to enjoy games alongside PC, console, and mobile platforms.
Same as with potential console release, we’d like to explore the possibilities of cloud streaming services, but will be focusing on our Steam version first thing after release.
Cloud gaming is the new buzzword around the gaming industry. It has been here for close to a decade but only now, thanks to Google Stadia, it is getting traction. In fact, Microsoft and Sony are working on their own Cloud Gaming Platforms. Sony Interactive Entertainment filed multiple patents recently for Cloud Systems and it’s believed to be linked to PlayStation 5 and PS Now.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is working on a Cloud Gaming platform called Project xCloud. The system went into internal testing earlier this year and we are expecting to hear more about in the near future. Both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett are heading our way next year during the Holiday season. PS Now and Project xCloud are expected to release with the next-generation consoles.
