Google at its ‘Made by Google’ event announced that its cloud-based Google Stadia gaming platform will officially launch on November 19.

The gaming platform aims to replicate Netflix-style subscription model which allows gamers to play games on any device on-the-go. The platform, similar to Microsoft’s Project Xcloud, is said to disrupt the gaming industry as it does away with consolers or game software on disc or download.

 

Some of the games to be available on Google Stadia are Destiny 2 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Ghost Recon Breakpoint from game giant Ubisoft.
