Google CEO: Publishers "want to see our commitment" to Stadia

Games publishers are eager to see whether Google is actually dedicated to its new Stadia streaming business.

That's according to the search and software giant's CEO Sundar Pichai, who was asked about the company's conversations with PC and console publishers by Credit Suisse's Stephen Ju in a call with investors.

"We see genuine excitement because I think, they see the opportunity for a shift, a point of inflection, but they realised the technical challenge of pulling something like this off. And so, but once they get their hands on with the technology and then they see the experience, I think, completely wins people over," Pichai said, as transcribed by Seeking Alpha

"And so we are having conversations across the board and I think people are definitely engaging in a very committed way and they are investing in it and so it’s up to us to bring it all together and have a compelling service later this year and that’s what the team has had done working on.

"But I think, not pushback per se, but they want to see our commitment, which is what we demonstrate and they are working hard to make the investments on their side. And so it’s a big joint effort and it’s working well."
