Despite the many innovations that Google’s specialists have created over the years such as one of the best search engines in the world, the excellent maps and, perhaps, the most intelligent voice assistant, a well-known company that very often closes their projects. And cartridges it is not only applications and services that are in development, but quite popular things that are already functioning. Of recent we can recall the closure of the social network Google Plus. But some video game developers are afraid that Google Stadia will suffer the same fate.
Why Google may shut down Google Stadia
For those who don’t know, a little recall, what Google Stadia. Google Stadia, or, as they call it, Netfix from the world of video games is a cloud game streaming service previously known as Project Stream. The official launch of Google Stadia to be held on 19 November 2019 30 countries. Russia at the time of launch of the service in this list, unfortunately, will not. And, remarkably, Google play Stadia will be available for a variety of devices: laptops, desktop personal computers, televisions, tablets and smartphones.
It all sounds like almost the coming future. But not all game developers (and they should be filled with content service) share the optimism about Google’s Stadia. According to the editors of the portal Android police, the biggest complaint of most developers on Google Stadia is the fear that Google will just close it.
Nobody says: “Oh, it won’t work” or “Streaming game services is not what we need.” Just the opposite. Everyone recognizes that streaming is the future. The biggest problem with Google Stadia is that it can disappear at any moment. And developers have no guarantee that this will not happen. You can’t just “install” the game in Google Stadia. The code you need to rewrite that requires efforts of the whole team. But these efforts can go in the trash. — says one of the creators of the games, on condition of anonymity.
Of course, Google has kept a lot of apps and brought them to mind. But the statistics say that a far greater number of projects, the search giant just rolled. What do you think what the future holds for Google Stadia? Please share your opinion in our chat in Telegram.

Meanwhile, despite the imminent release next week, Google Stadia will come with all the features that were claimed initially. For example, the start will not be the interface for achievements will not be promised a family that would share games with family members. Will also be supported by a complete Chromecast Ultra, which you can get by buying a Set of “Founder” or “Premium kit”. Conventional consoles Chromecast will be “in flight”.
And still on the run will not support 4K and HDR on PC, and features Stream Connect (split screen, where each player gets a separate computing platform), State Share (cloud saves, a link which you can share) and Play Crowd (the ability of viewers to connect to a multiplayer match, which they look).
But we would not share the pessimism of developers, as the most important issue at the moment is how steadily and smoothly will work the game. And if Google Stadia good show itself, then the platform will rush the players and the publishers, the developers. And for Google it’s an extra source of income. And profitable service nobody in their right mind will not close.
