Cyberpunk 2077 Confirmed For Google Stadia
Play the future on your futuristic streaming platform.
Cyberpunk 2077 may not be launching until next year, but now we know we'll have another option when deciding what platform to buy it on. Google opened its Gamescom presentation earlier this week with news that the much-anticipated CD Projekt Red game will be released on Google Stadia. The game was listed as "Coming Soon" rather than the already-known release date of April 16, 2020, so that could mean it's coming to Stadia after other platforms.
The Stadia is a streaming platform, which feeds video of your play session from a remote server, and it's set to launch this year. The list of games already announced for Stadia, in addition to Cyberpunk 2077, includes Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Mortal Kombat 11, Borderlands 3, The Elder Scrolls Online, and Samurai Shodown, among others.
Stadia will first launch in November 2019 as part of a special Founder's Edition for early adopters. The Stadia Base version will be available for free to everyone else following in 2020. You can pre-order the Stadia Founder's Edition right now. It costs $130 and includes a limited-edition night blue controller, a Chromecast Ultra, a three-month subscription to the Stadia Pro service, the opportunity to secure a username early, and a three-month Buddy Pass to Stadia Pro for a friend. Check out all we know about Google Stadia.
CD Projekt Red has confirmed the Cyberpunk 2077 release date for PS4, Xbox One, and PC as April 16, 2020. Although the developer has only confirmed a single-player campaign, at Gamescom it indicated that it was exploring a multiplayer option for Cyberpunk 2077. Similarly, it's contemplating what a New Game Plus mode could look like; at Gamescom, the developer disputed a recent suggestion that one would definitely be included.
