Google Stadia boss Phil Harrison has announced that the service will now launch with ten additional games, bringing the total number of launch games to 22.
Earlier this month, tech giant Google officially announced the launch games for their cloud-based gaming service Google Stadia. Many were disappointed with the offer since only twelve games were confirmed for the launch including Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11 and Destiny 2 as the biggest ones.
Players expected a lot more and were surprised to see that some Stadia showcase games like Doom were not on the list, which was a major disappointment, despite Google's promise that a lot more games will be added by the end of the year, including some AAA titles such as Borderlands 3.
However, it looks like Google had to act fast and a fresh batch of titles for the launch of Stadia. Whether the criticism was too loud for the company so close to release or it's a surprise for all Stadia owners, this comes as positive news for everyone that was initially disappointed with Stadia's offering.
Google Stadia boss, Phil Harrison announced via Twitter that the service will now launch with ten additional games, bringing the total number of launch titles to 22. "Excited to announce that we are INCREASING the Day One launch line-up of titles for Google Stadia - we now have TWENTY TWO games launching with the platform on Tuesday," Harrison wrote in a tweet.
