As we reported last week Stadia are looking to develop a game under a Games as a Service model. We have had a couple of jobs show up for Stadia Games and Entertainment that gives more weight to this. We have a job listing for a Senior Multiplayer programmer and a Senior Gameplay Programmer.
The second job in particular mentions that one of the requirements of the job is “Understanding of the technical considerations and best practices for Games As A Service.” It is also worth noting that multiplayer is going to be a real big factor of the game(s) going forward. This is because both jobs mention multiplayer as being a factor.
