Google Stadia Release Date Revealed

Here's when the streaming future starts.


Google Stadia now has an official release date. During a launch event for the Google Pixel 4, the company announced that the Founder's Edition will launch on November 19.

As previously announced, this year the Stadia service will be exclusive to those who purchase the Founder's Edition. That $130 pack includes a limited-edition night blue controller, Chromecast Ultra, a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro, early access to a Stadia name, and a three-month Buddy Pass of Stadia Pro for a friend.

Once the full service launches in 2020, you'll be able to play on any supported device without needing to purchase a bundle. Part of Google's pitch for Stadia is that it opens up gaming to everyone, rather than restricting core games to high-end PC hardware or consoles. Check out our pre-order guide for more details.

Most recently, Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming to PC, and confirmed that it's coming to Stadia as well. But the streaming service will have to address some lingering doubts from gamers, including technical hurdles like data caps and bandwidth limitations.
