Google announced it was ending in-house game development for Stadia at the start of February, and a number of the cancelled games and projects within the company have been revealed, according to a new report.
According to VGC, Google shut down a variety of releases, ranging from new games already in development, to deals with some of the biggest names in the games industry. In the report, it’s stated that Hideo Kojima, of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding fame, was in talks for an episodic horror game that would’ve been a Stadia exclusive, before Google decided not to proceed. Yu Suzuki was another creator in discussions for something published on Stadia, the report says.
Two games believed to have been in active development at the time of Google’s announcement were a sequel to Journey to the Savage Planet, from developer Typhoon, and Frontier, a multiplayer game led by former Splinter Cell producer Francois Pelland. Both teams found out about their cancellation at the same time as the news was being made public, the report states.
