A top Google Stadia executive has left the project, leaving it in a state of uncertainty. The company is still looking to release its cloud-based gaming service this year, but without any major partners.
The head of google stadia has left the project. This is yet another top executive to leave the project, which has been plagued with issues and delays since its announcement.
If you believe the string of bad luck for Google Stadia will eventually come to an end, you’re probably correct, but that day isn’t today. Stadia has lost its director of games, after the loss of its VP and head of product last spring and the shutdown of its internal games section at the start of the year.
According to ZDNet, Jack Buser has been working on the Stadia project for more than five years and was in charge of recruiting developers and publishers to the platform as well as forming partnerships. But he’ll be the Director of Global Gaming Solutions for Google Cloud, which may be a clue about the company’s changing goals and focus.
Google portrayed the decision as a good one, claiming that it has now added 200 games to the platform, and that Buser would “help create opportunities for wider strategic collaborations with customers across YouTube, Stadia, and more,” according to a company spokesperson. Stadia’s current General Manager, Phil Harrison, will continue to manage the company.
