The Division 2 Hits Stadia Next Week, Will be the Platform’s First Crossplay-Enabled Game

Submit

Stadia’s long major game drought will end next week when The Division 2 comes to the Google cloud gaming platform. It sounds like Ubisoft is going all out with this conversion, as it will include crossplay with PC (a first for Stadia) and Stream Connect support, which will let you view your teammates' gameplay on a single screen. In addition to The Division 2, Ubisoft will also be bringing The Crew 2 and Monopoly to Stadia in the future. Boy, I’m eager to see what the power of the cloud does for Monopoly!

Here are Google’s official descriptions for the upcoming Ubisoft games:

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (March 17)

The Crew 2 (March 25)

With a wide variety of exotic cars, bikes, boats, and planes to choose from, experience the unbridled thrill and adrenaline-pumping excitement of competing across the entire US as you test your skills in a wide range of driving disciplines. Fame is yours to take!

Monopoly (April 28)

Of course, March 20 also marks the release of Stadia’s most important release to date – Doom Eternal. Stadia recently surpassed 500,000 installs, but could they start surging toward the million mark next week? We shall see.
