Fans of the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise will be happy to know that Rockstar Games will be creating titles for the new Google Stadia gaming platform. Whether those titles are just ports of older games or titles that are totally new remains to be seen. Here’s what we know about it.

Google had just revealed its new gaming platform, Google Stadia, and announced a slew of game developers that will add titles to the new cloud gaming service’s library. The list includes big names like Ubisoft, Square Enix and Bethesda. The list also includes one developer that might get fans excited: Rockstar Games.

Planned from the start

Previously, Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive, expressed his intention to use game streaming technology to bring as many game titles the company can to as many people as possible.

“With regards to streaming technology and what it could mean for us, we're very optimistic about the notion of streaming technology, bringing our titles to consumers who currently don't have access to them,” Zelnick said.

With Google announcing Rockstar’s inclusion in the list of game developers working behind the scenes, it seems Zelnick’s vision is coming to pass. The question now is what games will Rockstar bring to Stadia?

GameSpot noted that out of the many developers included in the lineup, only three didn’t specify what titles they will bring to the platform at launch and immediately after. Rockstar is one of the three, which leaves so much room for fans to speculate.

Rockstar might choose to bring “Red Dead Redemption 2,” considering that it was released for other platforms just a few months ago. Another possibility would be the fan-favorite “GTA 5,” considering that it continues to be a big success among fans.

For sure, fans are excited to know if Rockstar will bring “GTA 6” to Stadia and, for that matter, all other gaming platforms. Previous reports claimed that the upcoming but nowhere-to-be-seen title will be a PlayStation 5-exclusive for a month at launch. With Rockstar being included in Stadia’s list of developers, however, anything’s possible.
