In einem Q&A mit Stadia-Mitarbeitern hat Phil Harrison geäußert, dass Microsofts Kaufrausch bzw. der Kauf von Bethesda einer der Gründe gewesen sei, die eigene Entwicklung von Exklusivspielen schon wieder aufzugeben:
"In his Thursday Q&A with staff, he pointed specifically to Microsoft’s buying spree and planned acquisition of Bethesda Software later this year as one of the factors that had made Google decide to close the book on original game development."
"Developers at Google’s recently formed game studios were shocked February 1 when they were notified that the studios would be shut down, according to four sources with knowledge of what transpired. Just the week prior, Google Stadia vice president and general manager Phil Harrison sent an email to staff lauding the “great progress” its studios had made so far. Mass layoffs were announced a few days later, part of an apparent pattern of Stadia leadership not being honest and upfront with the company’s developers, many of which had upended their lives and careers to join the team."
Klingt für mich alles nach einer Reihe von Ausreden. Dumm für die Mitarbeiter, die sich wieder nach neuen Jobs umschauen müssen... :/
