Google terminated Stadia services months ago, but it hasn’t completely exited the gaming industry. Rather than building its own platform, Google is pursuing live service games to support the use of its own cloud infrastructure and admits that previous endeavors haven’t worked out well on their own.
Talking to AxiosJack Buser, director of gaming industry solutions at Google Cloud, offered insight into the company’s new gaming strategy. Rather than continue with its legacy consumer-facing platform, Google is bundling cloud services for live-service game publishers. Buser said they’re still “fully committed to gaming,” but the future looks different after Stadia.

“In that moment when we basically had to make decisions about Stadia, we realized that at Google Cloud, we’re at our best when we help others build these things, not necessarily build them ourselves,” Buser told Axios.
