Google Stadia

has announced that around 400 new games are on the way for its Stadia Cloud game streaming service.

In an interview with MobileSyrup on Tuesday, Jack Buser, Stadia Director of Games, said most of these games would be arriving in 2021 and beyond.

The number of games on Stadia's roadmap gives evidence that is intended to run the service for a long period of time.

"We are looking many years out into the future. Gaming is one of the biggest businesses at Google, which is why you see us investing so much time and energy to support all these hundreds of developers building all these games. We have a very exciting year ahead of us. And, in fact, we have very exciting many years ahead of us," Buser was quoted as saying.

Having 400 games from so many different developers on the Stadia roadmap shows both how much is pushing the platform.

The company has made some big hires as part of its first-party development efforts, including ex-Ubisoft and EA producer Jade Raymond and ex-Sony Santa Monica studio head Shannon Studstill.

Meanwhile, Google announced that its cloud gaming service will come to iPhones and iPads in the near future through an upcoming web app.

Google said it has been building a progressive web app version of Stadia that will run in the mobile version of Apple's Safari browser, similar to how Microsoft intends to deliver its competing xCloud service on iOS sometime next year.
