The recently launched Stadia Connect virtual event was filled with a list full of exciting games porting to the cloud-based gaming platform.
Google Stadia took part in an alternative virtual presentation this Tuesday, in lieu of an actual physical gathering—all thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The head of UX research in Stadia, Meagan Timney, announced the games to expect, starting this year.

Per Engadget, Google’s game streaming service is criticized due to the limited games made available in its library. Currently, Google Stadia only offers around 60 games. Nevertheless, this number is about to change, with 16 titles teased during Stadia Connect.

- PGA Tour 2K21
- PUBG (Season 8)
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
- Serious Sam 4
- Super Bomberman R Online
- The Elder Scrolls Online: Stonethorn
- WWE Battlegrounds
One Hand Clapping by Bad Dream Games and HandyGames is already live with its early access on Stadia, but its official release will still be in 2021. Super Bomberman R Online, on the other hand, will be a timed-exclusive to Google’s cloud-based gaming platform, slated for Autumn this year.
Other Autumn releases will be the NBA 2K21, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
The latest games that Stadia Pro users should expect are Serious Sam 4 and PGA Tour 2k21 which are penned for next month. Meanwhile, PUBG Season 8 will be arriving by the end of the month, July 30.

Highly noted games
Eurogamer has highlighted Dead by Daylight among all others as the game will feature two of Stadia’s premium features—Crowd Play and Crowd Choice.
Per the U.K.-based publication, with Crowd Play on Dead by Daylight, streamers will have the ability to invite their avid viewers to “join in on a trial with a touch of a button.”
The Crowd Choice, on the other hand, will give the community a more social interaction with streamers as they can “vote and influence a Youtube streamer’s match,” as to which type of character the streamer should play as.
There are also two new titles coming from Stadia Games and Entertainment—Outcasters and Orcs Must Die! 3—that game enthusiasts should look out for.
