Google has effectively given up on making first-party games for its streaming service Stadia. However, it has committed to bringing more titles from external studios to the platform in the course of 2021. They are slated to include Far Cry 6, FIFA 21 and Hello Engineer, although not all of those will form part of the first wave of these new games.

Google Stadia has seen a huge proportion of adversity since its launch, not the least of which is the recent loss of its own Games & Entertainment Studio. However, its maker intends to forge ahead by growing its library of titles from other publishers. According to its latest blog post, FIFA 21 is to be one of them.

This international soccer game (EA Vancouver/EA Sports) is coming to the platform on March 17, 2021. It will be joined by a number of new games as specified by Google, most of which also have release dates for Stadia. They include:

  • Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition (WayForward): February 23, 2021
  • Shantae: Risky's Revenge (WayForward): February 23, 2021
  • It came from space and ate our brains (Triangle Studios): March 2, 2021
  • Kaze and the Wild Masks (PixelHive/SOEDESCO): March 26, 2021
  • Judgment (Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio/SEGA of America): April 23, 2021
  • Killer Queen Black (Liquid Bit/Bumble Bear): TBA
  • Street Power Football (SFL Interactive/Gamajun/Maximum Games): TBA
  • Hellpoint Developer (Cradle Games/tinyBuild): TBA

They comprise the first of "more than 100" games to be made available on Stadia for the first time during 2021. Google claims that they are to include titles such as Far Cry 6 and Riders Republic.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
