Google Stadia launch line-up grows by ten games days before release

Google has almost doubled the launch line-up of its Stadia streaming service, which rolls out tomorrow (Tuesday, November 19th).

Taking to Twitter (below), Google VP and GM Phil Harrison announced that there would now be 22 titles launching on its service tomorrow, ten more than the 12 that were revealed last week. New additions to the release slate are Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2, Farming Simulator 2019, Final Fantasy XV, Football Manager 2020, Grid 2019, Metro Exodus, NBA 2K20, Rage 2, Trials Rising and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

Stadia has just one exclusive title at launch, Tequila Works' Gylt, with Google's head of studios Jade Raymond saying that it'll be a while before we see any first-party content from the search firm

Google only established its first-party studio in Montreal last month, with development and production hires to Stadia Games and Entertainment only joining the company at the end of 2018 and start of 2019.

Stadia is also going to be missing many of its unique features when it launches tomorrow, with Google taking to Reddit to reveal that functionality like State Share would not be available on release.

That's assuming that consumers even have their Stadia pre-orders tomorrow after Google said that there have been some delays on shipments.
