Google is adding a new way for devel­op­ers who are part­nered with Sta­dia to make an income through Sta­di­a’s Pro sub­scribers. Accord­ing to an inter­view with GamesIndustry.biz, 70% of all month­ly rev­enue gen­er­at­ed by Pro sub­scrip­tions will be split between devel­op­ers. This is based on how many “ses­sion days” play­ers have spent on a devel­op­er’s games.

Sta­dia Pro sub­scribers have access to a library of stream­able games for a month­ly fee, sim­i­lar to oth­er ser­vices (such as Xbox Game Pass). When one user plays a game once a day counts as a “ses­sion day.” Of course, if they play a game twice in that same day, it’s still con­sid­ered only one “ses­sion day.”

With­in this same inter­view, Google also said they would be intro­duc­ing a lim­it­ed 85/15 rev­enue split for titles sold indi­vid­u­al­ly on the Sta­dia Store start­ing on Octo­ber 1 until the end of 2023. The com­pa­ny also plans to intro­duce an affil­i­ate mar­ket­ing pro­gram for Sta­dia Pro part­ners in the first half of 2022. In an inter­view with GamesIndustry.Biz ear­li­er this year, Sta­di­a’s devel­op­er mar­ket lead Nate Ahearn said that the ser­vice is “alive and well.”

Things haven’t exact­ly been going well for Google Sta­dia in 2021, con­sid­er­ing the com­pa­ny laid off all of its inter­nal game devel­op­ers back in Feb­ru­ary. Google has repeat­ed­ly announced their ser­vice has more than 100 games com­ing lat­er this year. How­ev­er, they have com­pe­ti­tion. Microsoft intro­duced Xbox Cloud Gam­ing stream­ing ser­vice through Xbox Game Pass.
