Google pulls in Typhoon Studios to work on games for Stadia

By - | Views: 24,839

Today, Google announced that Typhoon Studios have joined their new Stadia Games and Entertainment studio.

Typhoon Studios are currently working on Journey to the Savage Planet, which they've confirmed is still being developed and published across multiple platforms. It wasn't mentioned directly, but it likely means that Journey to the Savage Planet will release on Stadia too.

Under the leadership of its co-founders, Reid Schneider & Alex Hutchinson, Typhoon Studios has built an incredible team of industry veterans who are committed to the player experience. The Typhoon team will be joining our first Stadia Games and Entertainment studio that is based in Montreal and led by Sébastien Puel.

I fully expect this to be the first of multiple studios being pulled into Stadia development, just like Microsoft buying up studios and Epic Games offering exclusive deals and up-front money, if any other store or service wants to pull people in away from Steam they have to do something other than just provide games.

You can see the announcement here.

Not seen much of Stadia? You can see our initial impressions here, plus a full livestream VOD of Destiny 2 running on Linux/Stadia. In our further testing, it has continued to work really well.

Most recently, our livestreamer Sin took Borderlands 3 on Stadia for a spin and she seemed quite impressed. Even with it missing patches, the ability to load up Chromium on Linux and just play such big games so easily certainly makes things interesting.

I didn't watch the stream but I read somewhere that for now the game is locked at 30FPS, is that right?
