Google giving up on Stadia streaming service?

There have been many rumors and speculation regarding the status of the Google Stadia spread around the Internet as of late. There are many people who believe that Google’s streaming service is currently in great jeopardy; considering the fact that Sony and Microsoft are acquiring third party video game developers. Sony had recently purchased Bungie for $3.6 billion while Microsoft has acquired Activision Blizzard for $70 million. Activision Blizzard is currently owns the Call Of Duty, Warcraft, Overwatch and Diablo series; while Bungie has the likes of Destiny 2 and Halo. If third party developer acquisitions continue then players will end up becoming very limited in terms of what they can stream on the Stadia. In fact, many people believe that top executives at Google are seeking to make long-term deals with companies like Peleton to reach out to more casual gamers worldwide. Its a known fact that the Stadia subscription service fell way below Google’s expectations and it seems like the company is trying to salvage as best as they can. The idea of Google relaunching the Stadia under another possibly as a service that allows players to enjoy online demos sounds kinda cool. The landscape of gaming is constantly changing today especially with power moves being made by giant corporations in relation to gaming.
