Google employee Sony:
The PlayStation studio head, Shannon Studstill, who was in charge of popular hits like “God of War” and “Journey” has made a huge career announcement. She recently revealed that she is now leading a fresh game studio as part of Google’s video game industry surge.
Her words on Twitter, “So excited to build and support a new team of creatives @GoogleStadia!!” Shannon will be heading a completely new Stadia Games and Entertainment studio based in Playa Vista, California.
The Playa Vista studio is the 2nd game development-focused office Google started after Stadia’s big announcement in March last year, and employing Shannon is commendable for a company that is struggling to make an impact in the video game scene thus far.
Stadia studios head and Vice President, Jade Raymond had this to say, “The new Playa Vista studio will focus on delivering exclusive games, using new gameplay mechanics, creative ways to play together and unique interaction models that we’re just starting to explore.”
