Google Stadia Is 'Alive and Well', Says Google Exec

“We’re well on our way to over 100 new games launching on Stadia in 2021, and we’re continuing to make Stadia a great place to play games on devices you already own”.
“I’d tell any non-believers to take notice of how we’re continuing to put our words into action, as we grow the Stadia Makers program and partner with AAA studios like Capcom, EA, Square Enix, Ubisoft and others.”

In recent months, Stadia games' Jade Raymond left the company and moved to create a new studio, Haven, which will work with Sony in some capacity.

Google also shuttered internal studios, with Google VP and Stadia GM Phil Harrison saying at the time:

“Given our focus on building on the proven technology of Stadia as well as deepening our business partnerships, we’ve decided that we will not be investing further in bringing exclusive content from our internal development team SG&E, beyond any near-term planned games.”
