Google paid Capcom $10 Million
It seems that a bunch of hackers managed to hack Capcom’s security and leak a bunch of data. With the data leak consisting of images, internal design documents and more.
The data leak reveals pricing for Resident Evil Village’s different editions as well as a bunch of other information which you can check out here.
Now the leak we want to go over is that Google paid Capcom $10 million in order to bring Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village to Google Stadia. Now Google hasn’t confirmed that these games are coming to Google Stadia just yet, so we will have to wait for that announcement.
Now when a new platform releases like Google Stadia it can be hard for publishers to support that platform due to the risk, as it can cost a lot of money to port a game over to another platform. So Google has to give these publishers an incentive to bring games to Google Stadia.
Now from this leak, we can see that Google paid Capcom $10 Million so they would bring Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village to Google Stadia. In which this would cover costs for the publisher.
So with Google paying Capcom $10 Million, we can only imagine what other deals they have done behind closed doors. So for all those people saying Google will shut Google Stadia down, it doesn’t seem that way with them paying publishers massive amounts of money to bring games over to Google Stadia.
