Three years after its initial introduction, Google Stadia is still a service with more unanswered questions than actual games.

THIS YEAR, HOW MANY GAMES ARE COMING? Google Stadia committed to adding at least 100 new games on the platform each year for the first two full years of its existence. That was a target Google accomplished in 2020 and 2021. And there are currently about 300 games available on Stadia.

However, that objective has been subtly abandoned as of 2022. Google made a public commitment earlier in the year to release 100 new games on its platform, but it is quite evident at this time that we won’t see that goal achieved.

Every week, new games are introduced to Stadia, and we chronicle these additions in our Stadia Changelog section. Less than 50 games have been released so far this year, and only about 20 more are now reported to be in the works. At this moment, it appears that 75 to 80 new games will be released at most, and 100 games are all but impossible until at least a few new titles are released each week through the end of the year.

In fact, it’s so evident that even Google is aware of it. After featuring it only a few times on both “ This Week on Stadia ” and the “Stadia Savepoint” series, the firm silently erased the mention of delivering 100 games to the platform from its different blog posts months ago. Evidently, Google was careful in how it spelled the term “anticipated” to arrive.

These are just a few of the more than 100 titles that publishers large and small have planned for Stadia this year.
WHAT BIG RELEASES ARE THERE? The caliber of games launched on Stadia is a major source of debate.

Indie books are a terrific way to build your library on a budget because they are frequently outstanding, entertaining, and can be a lot of fun. But a large audience rarely shows up for these games.

Only a small number of new games that may be categorized as “major” releases have been added to Google Stadia so far this year. Really, the only “big” releases that come to mind for 2022 thus far are FIFA 23, Saints Row, and Rainbow Six Extraction. The other two have received negative reviews, and one of those has yet to be released. Meanwhile, none of the year’s top titles, including Elden Ring, Spiderman: Remastered, Dying Light 2, Stray, and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, have even the slightest chance of being released on Stadia.
