Rockstar Confirmed As Google Stadia Dev

Google has finally given lots more information about its upcoming Stadia streaming service, including a price point and launch plans. Among the details was a list of launch games, with notable names like Bethesda, Square Enix, and Ubisoft. One eye-catching name on the list of developers is Rockstar.

Unlike most other listed studios, though, Rockstar’s name doesn’t include a list of planned games. Instead, a footnote says that it will “announce content at their discretion.” Only two other publishers share this footnote, Electronic Arts and Capcom.

That leaves an open question as to just which games Rockstar plans to bring to Google Stadia. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a distinct possibility, as the studio’s most recent release. Grand Theft Auto 5 would also make sense, given its ongoing success. However, neither of those are confirmed, so we could be getting other games from the Rockstar catalog.

Google Stadia will launch in November, so whatever Rockstar has in store will need to be ready by then. That’s when Google will release the Stadia Founder’s Edition, which includes hardware in the form of a Chromecast with a controller, along with a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro. A separate Stadia Base tier, which allows a la carte game purchases at a lower resolution, will launch in 2020.
