However, that doesn't seem to be the case as many new games are coming to Stadia in 2021.


Stadia Lives On

Recently, Google announced that it was closing its own Stadia Games Studio, a studio dedicated to developing games for the platform.

This fueled a lot of speculation that the Google Stadia won't be around much longer and the servers will eventually go offline.

That doesn't appear to be the case though as Google have announced over 100 new games that will be coming to the Stadia platform during 2021.

We have already seen Little Nightmares 2 launch on day 1 on the Stadia's Pro membership tier, showing that the Stadia still has some gas left in the tank.


Which Games Are Coming To Stadia In 2021?

In a blog post, Google highlighted some games which will be coming to the platform over the coming months.

These include the likes of Shantae, FIFA 21, Judgement, Killer Queen Black, and Hellpoint.

Looking towards the future though, titles such as Far Cry 6, Riders Republic, Hello Engineer, Dirt 5, Ark Survival Evolved, and Disco Elysium will all be coming to Stadia in 2021 along with around 90 other unannounced games.
