When a gap remains, others tend to fill it.
By now, surely many of you will know that Google Stadia will close its services in the coming months, thus giving rise to the platform stopping working when it barely takes just over three years since its launchthus becoming not only one of Google’s biggest failures in recent years, but also once again demonstrating that it is difficult to enter the console market with Nintendo, Xbox and PlayStation in between.
In fact, this reaches so much that it has been seen that there will be some other game that be lost foreversince, as they have explained, these titles were made specifically for Google Stadiathus giving rise to its passage and adaptation to other consoles being too complicated and expensive, as has happened with the case of Outcasters .
Netflix would enter the video game business taking advantage of the Google Stadia gap
Given this, it must be said that, as is often said, the void tends to fill in a natural way, thus giving rise to the fact that after the cessation of Google Stadia, a new company could take advantage of this gap, being that it has been known that Netflix would be exploring the possibility of entering the game in the cloud, this being a technology that is becoming more and more common within large technology companies. In fact, if we take into account the similarities between cloud gaming and streamingwe see that Netflix would already have experience.
It should be noted that, speaking of the past, in 2021 Netflix started including mobile games at no additional cost in your subscription, even though these have not finished standing out, although it does not mean that the company is looking for new ways to strengthen this market as stated by Mike Verdu, vice president of Netflix.
In fact, it should be noted that in the recent Ubisoft Foward it has been possible to see that Netflix is getting its own Assassin’s Creed game, so it could be a first contact for a larger market. We’ll see over time what ends up happening.
