Google Starts New Stadia Studio with Assassin's Creed Veterans

VGC reports Google has started their first game developer to support Stadia, saying they've opened a studio in Montreal. This is staffed by former Ubisoft executives that were veterans of Assassin's Creed devs for first Stadia studio, headed up by Jade Raymond. Here's a rundown of who is involved:
Montreal’s Stadia Games and Entertainment’s studio is the streaming platform’s first original games studio, established by another former Assassin’s Creed developer, Jade Raymond, who is in charge of Stadia’s first-party games production.

Sébastien Puel has joined the company as director general of the studio. Puel was one of the key figures behind Assassin’s Creed and acted as the franchise’s executive producer for almost ten years, from Assassin’s Creed 2 to 2014’s Unity.

Meanwhile Francois Pelland has been appointed head of production for Google’s first-party game strategy.

Pelland was the exec director of development at Ubisoft Quebec, the studio that created Assassin’s Creed Syndicate under his watch. Pelland was also a senior producer for Assassin’s Creed 3 and exec producer for South Park: The Fractured but Whole.

Finally, veteran artist Mathieu Leduc has joined Google Stadia as an art director. Leduc was in charge of the art direction for the first two Watch Dogs games and was assistant art director for the original Assassin’s Creed.

I wonder how old one has to be to become an industry veteran? 30? :p

These companies keep starting this up in an attempt to become the Netflix of game streaming: first company to pull it off wins.

This cloud fiasco was attempted before and it will fail again. The concept sounds cool but it just doesn’t work. Look at the bandwidth you eat up sending that video. The latency, etc.

I for one hope this push to cloud gaming dies the expensive and painful death it deserves.

You guys are all a bunch of Negative Nancys. They could throw alot of computing power at development for this platform. I, for one, will be interested to see what they come up with.
NEGATIVE LATENCY!

The only reason I don't care personally about it, is this is all Stadia exclusives. I'm not a potential customer for this product, at least that I'm not aware of for a very long time. What kind of budget can they really put on a game that is exclusive to few gamers?

No worries, dude. It's cool to be interested in garbage. Whole industries revolve around garbage. It's fine.

I suppose Blue can write his story about how Google is shuttering it's Montreal game development studio and file it away for future posting.

Zackly. Stadia will be done by the time they get a game out the door.

Holy shit is all of Blue’s going to be in agreement on something? THE END IS NIGH!
