The life cycle of Google Stadia it has not been the simplest, since the launch of the platform designed for gaming via streaming.
Now, another senior team member has left the company, just a couple of months after the Mountain View giant shut down all of its in-house development teams.
John Justice has in fact abandoned the role of vice president and head of product for Stadia, according to what was also reported by VGC.
“We can confirm that John is no longer part of Google and we wish him all the best for his next career step”, a spokesperson for the company explained.
Justice’s departure goes hand in hand with Google’s announcement last February, in which the company revealed that it would shut down all of its internal game development teams for Stadia.
The idea was part of an important change of course, which would consequently partially transform the idea behind the original design.
According to plans, the streaming platform will focus on collaborating with third-party game companies.
But that’s not all: Google said it would focus again this year on offering its technology and platform tools to external partners.
In February, journalist Jason Schreier had tried to clarify the reasons for the “failure” of Stadia.
In short, the idea continues according to which the company is opting for a sort of strategic retreat, after realizing that it took the field too late to obtain the desired results.
After all, the news of Hideo Kojima’s aborted project did not suggest anything good for the future of Stadia and its games.
Despite everything, today Stadia Pro subscribers were able to get their hands on a free game on the occasion of Star Wars Day.
