Gaming is one of the biggest businesses at Google, which is why you see us investing so much time and energy to support all these hundreds of developers building all these games. We have a very exciting year ahead of us. And, in fact, we have very exciting many years ahead of us,” said Buser.
Having 400 games from so many different developers on the Stadia roadmap shows both how much Google is pushing the platform. Along with it, Google Stadia is adding six new games to its growing collection onc 1 December as part of Stadia Pro.
The development was shared on the official Stadia community forum and these games include Into the Breach, Hitman 2, Kine, Monster Jam Steel Titans, Everspace, and Secret Neighbor. Currently, there are over 30 games available as part of the Stadia Pro subscription that costs $9.99 per month. Also, 30 November is the last chance for Stadia Pro owners to claim SUPERHOT, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, Little Nightmares, Hello Neighbor, and Super Bomberman R Online for free with Stadia Pro.
The company has made some big hires as part of its first-party development efforts, including ex-Ubisoft and EA producer Jade Raymond and ex-Sony Santa Monica studio head Shannon Studstill.
