New games on Stadia

No new games were released on Google Stadia during the week of February 7, 2022.

So far in 2022, Google Stadia has added six new games. In 2021, Google delivered 107 to Stadia, and the company promises at least 100 new games during this calendar year.

Games coming to Stadia

A few new games have been confirmed to come to Google Stadia. On February 15, MY HERO ONE’S JUSTICE 2 will be available for purchase, the same day as the previously-announced Dynasty Warriors 9.

Lumote: The Mastermote Chronicles was also announced this week with support for Stadia. The game is set to arrive on March 24 alongside other platforms. Zorro: The Chronicles was also announced this week, and appears to be coming to Stadia based on its announcement trailer.

As spotted by the folks over at StadiaSource, the developers of the survival game Derelicts have expressed interest in bringing their title to Stadia, but it’s early days for that at best. The same outlet also confirmed that Smash Ball, which was supposedly coming to Stadia, actually won’t be arriving on the platform.
