Google Stadia’s launch lineup has been revealed and, well, Stadia is only launching with twelve games. 

After months of hype surrounding Google’s upcoming video game streaming service, the product’s closely-arriving launch seems rather flaccid.

Launching on November 19th, Stadia users will only have access to the following titles:

  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  • Destiny 2: The Collection
  • GYLT
  • Just Dance 2020
  • Kind
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Thumper
  • Tomb Raider
  • Rise of theTomb Raider
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Samurai Shodown

With most of these titles already available on numerous physical consoles – Just Dance is available on the ruddy Wii – the lineup undeniably falls flat. Thoughts of the infamous Nintendo Wii U come to mind, a system that mostly launched with re-releases. However, that launched with more games.

Google has also stated that only 14 additional games will be available on the service by the end of 2019. Those games are:

  • Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
  • Borderlands 3
  • Darksiders Genesis
  • Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
  • Farming Simulator 19
  • Final Fantasy 15
  • Football Manager 2020
  • Ghost Recon Breakpoint (lol) 
  • Grid
  • Metro Exodus
  • NBA 2K20
  • Rage 2
  • Trials Rising
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood

“We’re launching Stadia with 12 carefully-chosen games on day one, and an additional 14 will  be available by the end of the year,” Google states. “There’s something for everyone here: a library of superb, critically-acclaimed titles spanning multiple genres and age ratings.”
