Six additional staff leave Stadia to join Haven Studios

Former Stadia Games and Entertainment GM Sebastien Puel is a co-founder of Jade Raymond's new venture

A further six members of staff have left Google Stadia for new roles at Haven Studios, the venture founded by former Stadia VP Jade Raymond.

As spotted by a poster on Resetera, staff across multiple disciplines have taken positions at the Montreal-based studio between April and May.

Among the hires are Corey May, former head of creative services and publishing at Stadia Games and Entertainment, and former SG&E general manager Sebastien Puel, who is also a co-founder of Haven Studios.

The departures follow the recent resignation of Stadia head of product John Justice.

Raymond left Google Stadia back in February to form Haven Studios, shortly after Google closed its internal development studios. The cloud-based streaming platform is still in operation, but with a focus on third-party games.

Haven Studios has also received investment from Sony to develop a debut game. While the project is currently unannounced, it will be an original IP for PlayStation.
