Stadia users won't have to wait longer than players on other platforms to get their hands on Outriders after all. Square Enix's intriguing action RPG-shooter will hit Google's game streaming service on April 1st. Outriders is scheduled to arrive on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on the same day. Previously, developer People Can Fly and Square Enix said it would land on Stadia later this year.

This should come as welcome news for those who were planning to play it on Stadia. There have been several cases where games have been released on Stadia much later than on other platforms. Madden NFL 21, FIFA 21 and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order all hit the service several months after they arrived elsewhere. A simultaneous release date for Outriders gives Stadia more parity with rival platforms, which is important given that Google closed its first-party studios to focus on partnerships with third-party developers.
