Google's Stadia has been making the headlines recently, but not for good reasons. A couple of weeks ago, the company announced that it is shutting down its Stadia Games & Entertainment division, which was responsible for developing exclusive games for the platform. Earlier this week, we also found out that the Stadia version of Terraria is canceled because Google has disabled the developer's account.
In a bit of relatively more positive news today, Google has announced that more than 100 games will be coming to the platform in 2021.
The promise of 100 games this year is a bit of a downgrade compared to the 120 it vowed to bring to the platform in 2020. However, this shouldn't distract from the fact that this is still a significant number. Google has also revealed the names of nine titles that are coming soon, and they are as follows:
- Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition - February 23
- Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut - February 23
- It came from space and ate our brains - March 2
- FIFA 21 - March 17
- Kaze and the Wild Masks - March 26
- Judgment - April 23
- Killer Queen Black - Coming soon
- Street Power Football - Coming soon
- Hellpoint - Coming soon
Other games slated to release in 2021 also include Far Cry 6 and Hello Engineer. Stadia currently offers over 100 games to stream over the internet, with the promise of more to come. A few months ago, a Stadia executive stated that Google is tracking development for 400 games from 200 developers. It remains to be seen whether the company will be able to keep up with this figure, but the latest announcement will certainly restore some amount of confidence for users of the platform.
