Obviously, Supermassive’s game should not have ended up under the control of Take-Two, but rather that of Google. Except that in the meantime there has been a shipwreck.
In 2020, Stadia still had the desire to assert itself and make a name for itself in gaming with its “revolutionary” streaming game platform. In this context, the company had signed several important partnerships to design a catalog of exclusive games supposed to attract people and The Quarry was one of them if we are to believe the information shared by the Axios site.
Google goes all-in, Take-Two wins the game
Stadia and Supermassive had, at the time, formalized their union (Google especially in reality), but there had been no sequel. In 2021, as if nothing had happened, the internet giant announced major internal restructuring. Google had then cleaned up its affairs, throwing all these plans in the trash and closing its studios with a vengeance.
That’s when Supermassive began to actively search for a new publisher for its software whose development was already well advanced. And it was finally Take-Two who won the bet. Another game also had the same fate, High On Life, the crazy FPS from the creator of Rick and Morty, which was recovered by Microsoft and will be released by the end of the year.
The rest, we know it, The Quarry was released on June 10 on PS5, Xbox Series, PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and was quite well received. Besides, our test is coming very quickly, we promise. We’ll give you a little teaser if you want: it’s a killer, in every sense of the word.
Otherwise Stadia has become a kind of streaming platform that sells its services to professionals, finally, at the latest news.
