Google’s “Stadia” cloud-based game streaming platform was announced at the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March, and based on what we’ve learned so far, it sounds pretty good. Google is promising little to no latency, a sizable game selection, performance that exceeds the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro combined, and perhaps most importantly the ability to play without high-end consoles or PC hardware.
So far, Google has kept the public in the dark about Stadia’s pricing and games lineup, but is planning to reveal those and other details about its upcoming game streaming service this summer, the company announced today.
Google didn’t mention a specific reveal date in its announcement on Twitter, only that more Stadia details are “coming soon.” Hopefully that means early summer rather than having to wait until September.
Fortunately, Google’s official Stadia Twitter account has promised an answer to all three of those questions “this summer,” so we can likely expect to learn more about the platform in the next couple of months. Maybe Google will save its big reveals for E3, which kicks off on June 11
