After some backlash, Google is almost doubling the number of Stadia launch titles
22 is a lot better than 12.
Last week, we reported on the surprisingly light number of games that were releasing with Google Stadia, Google’s game streaming service. Now, that number is almost doubling just days before its full release.
Phil Harrison, Vice President and GM at Google, has revealed that the company is adding more titles to the launch list, including some sports titles that were missing prior. Harrison also noted that Google’s partners did an awesome job to help make it happen.
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

It’s good to see the company adding a solid number of titles, and the lack of sports titles was surprising, so its good to see titles like NBA 2K20 added to the list of launch games.
