Industry veteran Phil Harrison has left Google.
Harrison joined Google back in 2018 as a vice president heading up its Stadia cloud games streaming business. Over his career, he has worked at a variety of games companies, most notably PlayStation – where he was president of worldwide studios for over 15 years – before joining Microsoft as a corporate vice president in 2012. He's also held a board role at Atari and streaming firm Gaikai.
There's no word from Google or Harrison where he is off to next.
His departure comes in the wake of Google closing down the Stadia streaming service in January of this year. Launched back in November 2019, the platform came with its fair share of problems and there were reports that the service failed to garner the kind of audience that Google had hoped for.
