Well, with Jedi: Fallen Order, our prayers may be answered.
Google Stadia Makes an Appearance
Stadia, Google’s upcoming video game streaming service, had some announcements of their own at E3 2019. With Gylt and Balder Gate III, Google is hoping their Stadia exclusives will be enough to drive gamers to use their new platform.
