Ubisoft was one of the earliest third-party developers to have been a part of Google Stadia testing with Project Stream last Fall, so it may be unsurprising to see that it is bringing more games to the streaming service. During Google’s Pre-E3 2019 presentation, it was revealed that Ghost Recon Breakpoint and The Division 2 will be among the games at launch in November.
In a statement following the Google Stadia stream, Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot made clear that the publisher would be supporting the launch of the new platform with their latest titles.
“Ubisoft is bringing several fantastic gaming worlds to Stadia at launch and we cannot wait to see players experience them on this game-changing cloud technology,” he said. “Starting later this year, Stadia will bring players the possibility to share and enjoy even more memorable gaming moments wherever they choose to play.”
During the stream, Ubisoft focused primarily on The Division 2 and Ghost Recon, however, they’ll also bring even more titles to the Stadia. These games include The Crew 2, Trials Rising, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and the latest Just Dance title. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was recently revealed last month, and we got a sense of what’s to come with the next open-world tactical shooter. don’t know much about Breakpoint yet, but gameplay suggests the open-world shooter will expand upon the formula of Ghost Recon Wildlands–which has seen a rise in both quality and popularity in recent years.
Along with Odyssey, The Division 2 has been one of Ubisoft’s most active games as of late. Since its launch last March, the game has grown significantly, adding in a new a raid and endgame features. With the focus on streaming and accessibility, evolving games like Odyssey and The Division 2 could make for some exciting games to dive into with the Stadia. Allowing players without access to high-end machines to gives more games a chance.
GameSpot Editor Edmond Tran praised The Division 2 in our review, writing “The ravaged environments continue to intrigue, and sometimes they’re so stunning I find myself needing to take screenshots before I move on. It might not have much to say, but The Division 2 is a perpetual cycle of tension, relief, and reward that’s difficult to stay away from.”
As of this time, the Google Stadia will launch November 2019. The Stadia will also release with the Stadia Founder’s Edition, coming packed with a Google Chromecast with a controller, along with a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro. The standard Stadia Base pack, letting players purchase games separately and play them at a lower resolution, will release sometime in 2020.
