The list of Google Stadia launch games was revealed earlier this week, and while Codemasters’ Grid reboot won’t be among them, it’s still expected to launch this year. When it does, it’ll come with a new multiplayer mode unavailable on PC or consoles, boasting up to 40 cars on track at the same time.

The reason this won’t be coming to PC? Because Stadia’s technology is the only way to make it feasible. GRID development director Mark Green indicated as much in a recent interview with WCCFTech. Speaking on the differences between developing for Stadia and more conventional platforms, Green singled out the technology’s streaming nous.
