Google Stadia, launch line-up almost doubled

Google Stadia is just a few hours from its debut and is trying to defend itself against the numerous criticisms of recent days, due to the inaccessibility of some features promised to users at the time of launch (which will come later). However, the research giant has tried to redeem itself in its own way, with a surprise that could certainly make users happy: at Day One, they will be as many as 22 games available, almost twice as many as the company had declared last week.

Some of the titles in question, in fact, were not expected before 2020 according to Google's latest estimate, but the head of Stadia, Phil Harrison, gave explanations to The Verge via Twitter.

Below is therefore possible to take a look at the updated list of games, with the new additions in bold:

  • Assassin's Creed Odyssey
  • Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
  • Destiny 2: The Collection (available in Stadia Pro)
  • Farming Simulator 2019
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Football Manager 2020
  • Grid 2019
  • Gylt
  • Just Dance 2020
  • Kine
  • Metro Exodus
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • NBA 2K20
  • Rage 2
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Samurai Shodown (available in Stadia Pro)
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Thumper
  • Tomb Raider 2013
  • Trials Rising
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood

But that's not all: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, a title previously scheduled for 2020, will arrive by the end of 2019; and Doom: Eternal, Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters and Cyberpunk 2077 are now all officially confirmed for a Google Stadia debut in 2020. The Mountain View company also attaches great importance to exclusive titles, the recent opening of the first internal development study (there will be others). The goal is to produce original content "in a diversified portfolio of games". It will be interesting to find out what will be Google Stadia's exclusive exclusives, which will probably exploit the full potential offered by the service.
