Quoting: PublicNuisanceStadia games are not native Linux games. They are not Linux games any more than a PS4 gamer can say they are playing BSD games on their console simply because it's OS was based on BSD. If a game has released on Stadia but not available on Linux outside of it then it is not a Linux game.

Stadia developers are Linux developers. So these big studios have them now. Before they didn't have them. Whether they want to release for Linux or not is another question, but in the past when they wanted, they had to work with someone like Feral to do it. Today - not anymore.

Wake me up when a Linux version gets released due to Stadia. Any game at all. Until then I refuse to drink the kool aid.

Metro Exodus?

To be fair both Metro Games got a Linux Version before Stadia. So i wouldnt count that.

One could argue that the expiry of the exclusivity to the Epic Store had as much to do with Linux getting a version as Stadia.

Also they refuse to release a DRM free Linux version even though Windows gets one so on a personal level they can still pound sand.
