As we already know, Stadia launches on November 19. Up to this point, Google and the Stadia team have had no problem in showcasing which games will be available (eventually) on the platform. Today, though, we know exactly which titles will be available on launch day and the list is incredibly short.
12 titles will be available through Stadia on November 19. Only 12. Google says that, “There’s something for everyone here: a library of superb, critically-acclaimed titles spanning multiple genres and age ratings.”
- UPDATE NOVEMBER 18: Google shared an updated list for launch that expands the number to 22 games. The below list has been updated.
- Destiny 2: The Collection (available in Stadia Pro)
- Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
- Just Dance 2020
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Tomb Raider 2013
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Samurai Shodown (available in Stadia Pro)
- Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
- Farming Simulator 2019
- Final Fantasy XV
- Football Manager 2020
- Grid (2019)
- Metro Exodus
- Trials Rising
- Wolfenstein: Youngblood
- Rage 2
- NBA 2K20
By the end of 2019, Google says it will add 14 more titles, bringing the total number of games on Stadia in 2019 to 26. Again, not a huge number, but it’s a start. Later this year, Stadia subscribers can look forward to Borderlands 3, Farming Simulator 19, RAGE 2, NBA 2K20, Football Manager 2020, and others.
I wouldn’t exactly say this group of titles for launch is ideal, but you do have to start somewhere. If you’re the early adoption type, streaming access to these games doesn’t exactly scream $10/month to me, but as the service grows, I could see myself taking it more seriously.
