It turns out making good videogames is hard even for trillion-dollar tech corporations – PC Gamer

Google and Amazon have changed the way the world works, but it doesn’t look like they’re going to change the way people make good videogames. Some things, perhaps, can’t be disrupted.

Google has completely given up on plans to create its own Stadia-exclusive games, citing the increasing cost of development (which doesn’t remotely sound like the whole story). Amazon is staying in the game, although after six years of trying it still hasn’t released a hit. It keeps delaying its big MMO, New World, and has canceled multiple other games, including Crucible, which bombed last year. Reports from Wired and Bloomberg tell a story of leadership that supposes that technology, data, and the right management principles will result in billion-dollar franchises—but it hasn’t worked yet.
