Ahead of this year’s E3, Google introduced its subscription based streaming service. While we will have to wait few more months before getting access to the upcoming service, head of Stadia, Phil Harrison recently revealed that Publishers will be able to offer their own subscription within the platform.
Harrison’s latest comments came during his interview with Rockpapershotgun during his appearance at the E3. During his interview with Geoff Keighley, Harrison revealed that he expects different publishers to start offering their own plans shortly after Stadia’s launch in November. He also revealed that Google will announce more details of the product in the coming months leading up to the release.
However, Harrison didn’t reveal which of the publishers will provide subscription although he mentioned that most likely candidates are those with bigger offerings. As Electronics Arts and Ubisoft have their own impressive lineups, it won’t be surprising if both of the companies join the program. Most importantly, EA already has its own subscription service as it offers users ability to download a number of games on their Xbox One for a monthly SR.
At the moment, we will have to wait to find out more about Stadia. As we move towards the release of the platform, we should learn more about it in timely manner.
