Google announced an updated Stadia launch lineup over the weekend, with almost twice the number of originally announced games now slated to release alongside the Stadia streaming service on November 19.
The list of new Stadia launch games is:
- Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
- Farming Simulator 19
- Final Fantasy XV
- Grid 2019
- Football Manager 2020
- Metro Exodus
- NBA 2K20
- Rage 2
- Trials Rising
- Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Compared to the original launch lineup announcement, these are all games bumped up from the list of titles Google said would arrive on Stadia sometime before the end of 2019.
Reportedly, that’s because Google intentionally remained conservative in its estimates, with Google VP Phil Harrison telling The Verge’s Sean Hollister that Google wasn’t certain the November 19 launch would give its partners enough time to work with the platform.
As it stands, Harrison says Stadia partners “did an awesome job getting last [sic] few kinks ironed out and through testing.”
That Google and those it works with were able to exceed internal expectations potentially bodes well for the missing features Stadia won’t be getting until sometime in the weeks following launch.
