Cloudy with a Chance of Games

Stadia has had a very rough start to 2021 to say the least. There were some ups and downs for sure. With the announcement that Stadia will come preloaded on LG and other smart TV’s, that should have been a big win for the platform. However, it was later announced in a blog post that Stadia’s first party studios (Stadia Games & Entertainment) in Montreal, and Playa Vista would be shut down, as well as Stadia R & D. As a result, over 150 employees lost their jobs, Jade Raymond walked away from the platform, and Typhoon Studios was closed as well.

This was disheartening news to say the least. It also came to light (via Kotaku) that Phil Harrison sent an email a week before the firings on February 1st that they were proud of the work they have done. Now, this has been discussed on many different shows, and posts, so there’s no need to rehash it here.

Turning the page

With well over 100 games set to release on Stadia in 2021, Stadia is looking to have brighter days ahead.

Recently, it was announced in the February 12th blog post that over 100 games will be coming to Stadia in 2021. Some of those games have been announced, and some have been released. Previously, I wrote an article that kept a growing list of games releasing on Stadia for the Fall/Winter seasons in 2020, and 2021.

You can check it out here.

I liked that list so much that I wanted to keep going. So, rather than re-writing the entire article to bring it up-to-date. I am starting a new article for this year. As always, as more information becomes available, I will add it to the list, and update accordingly. So this will serve as a living article, and reference for you to keep up with the latest information on releases, and what games are coming.
