Last week, Google announced the list of games that will be available for Stadia from launch and it was met with less enthusiasm than the company probably thought. Many of the games to feature are very strong, but there were only 12 of them.
It now seems the Stadia team was listening, and has hastened the release date of another 10 to make for a better launch line-up.
The original list consisted of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Destiny 2: The Collection, Gylt, Just Dance 2020, Kine, Mortal Kombat 11, Red Dead Redemption 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Samurai Shodown, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Thumper, and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
But, Stadia boss Phil Harrison announced on Twitter that the overall launch list will now include 22 games in total.
Excited to announce that we are INCREASING the Day One launch line-up of titles for @GoogleStadia - we now have TWENTY TWO games launching with the platform on Tuesday. Huge thank you to our game developer and publisher partners for bringing more titles #stadia— Phil Harrison (@MrPhilHarrison) November 18, 2019
The additional games Google has added to the list are Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2, Farming Simulator 2019, Final Fantasy XV, Football Manager 2020, Grid 2019, Metro Exodus, NBA 2K20, Rage 2, Trials Rising, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
That makes the new cloud gaming platform look a bit healthier from day one. The four other games Stadia originally promised before the end of the year will remain on their original launch schedule.
So far, another 16 games will be coming next year.
