A further six staff members from the Google Stadia team have left the company, all transferring to the same studio.

Among them are former Stadia Games and Entertainment general manager Sebastien Peul and Corey May, former head of creative services and publishing. Jonathan Dankoff, Pierre-Marc Bérubé, Erwann Le Rouzic and Francis Denoncourt have all also departed Stadia within the last month, as a ResetEra post (opens in new tab) points out.

All six members have taken on new roles at Haven Studios. It was founded by former Stadia boss and Assassin's Creed co-creator Jade Raymond earlier this year, with Puel listed as a co-founder on his LinkedIn page (opens in new tab). Raymond left Stadia Games following the closure of its internal development studio (opens in new tab). Haven Studios hasn't announced any games yet, but it's already received investment from Sony to help develop its debut game.

The wave of departures follows from the very recent news that Stadia vice-president and product head John Justice had left Google (opens in new tab) after two years with the company.

Correction: The former employees were under the Stadia Games and Entertainment team, not Stadia overall. The article has been updated for better accuracy and clarification.

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
