Google Stadia must deliver enough, quality games that users would want to play on its platform. Right now, there’s a clear lack of quality games available on Google Stadia, and if you are thinking about deleting your Google Stadia account, we can’t blame you. One thing is certain: Not enough developers are currently working on Google Stadia for some reason.
So, the question arises: What could be the reason for this sheer lack of enthusiasm among Google Stadia’s developer community?
“There isn’t enough money there…”
Game developers and publishers have two major complaints against Google Stadia, according to Business Insiders. Developers and publishers say that Google did not provide them enough money to make their games available on Google Stadia.
It’s highly surprising because the whole idea behind Google Stadia is to make some of the major titles available for its players. Hence, if Google doesn’t wish to keep its game developers and publishers happy, doubts will keep raising on Google Stadia’s future.
Money isn’t the only concern
Too much uncertainty about the platform’s future is not good for Google. According to the report, there must ve a clear lack of trust among developers and publishers with respect to Google Stadia’s plans to keep things afloat in the long term.
Developers aren’t sure if Google wants to keep working on Google Stadia in one year from now, and Google is habitual to giving up on projects that don’t fly or generate money.
It will be interesting to see how Google plans to address some of these valid concerns.
Do we really need Google Stadia?
Google formally announced Google Stadia at last year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. The service allows users to stream video games on their phone, tablet, TV or computer.
In a nutshell, Google Stadia is undoubtedly a great concept — there’s no doubt about it. But it feels like exactly what it is — nothing more than a concept. There’s hardly any potential with Google Stadia as far as traditional, mainstream gaming is concerned.
At a time when there’s tremendous excitement about streaming, be it music or videos, tech companies like Google are trying to cash in on the hype. But the question is simple: Do we really need it?
