In what can only be described as a failed smokebomb drop, owners of the Stadia streaming game console are calling out Google for 40 days of silence without word of any new games, feature updates, or community updates.
A post by redditor Gizoogle has done a rather tidy job of summarizing the lack of communication, pointing out that the promised 120 games have yet to be revealed, along with a lack of information regarding family sharing, Stadia base, and iOS support, and an apparent two month release window for basic features like 4K resolution on browsers, Google Assistant functionality, and the full set of wireless controller features.
“Now that everyone’s renewal date is approaching, I think it’s time we outline the issues […] and attempt to get some sort of response from the Google team that inspires more confidence than what we’ve seen so far,” reasons the post.
There has been a response from one of Google’s community managers that assures Stadia owners that feedback is being collected and forwarded to the Stadia team.
“All the concerns you’ve brought to the table are completely valid, and I understand where your frustrations are coming from. Nobody likes to be left in the dark. While I don’t have product updates to share right at this second, I can promise you that I have been, and will continue taking feedback posted to r/Stadia and other channels, like the Stadia Community Forum, back to the Stadia team.”
There have been a couple of game release reveals for the Stadia, with Gylt and Metro Exodus confirmed to arrive to the platform in February, but otherwise it appears to all be a bit head in the sand behavior.
