Ubisoft games are now available on PC for Stadia players

Google Stadia will be shut down on January 18, and before that date Ubisoft is now rolling out PC copies of games to players who have purchased games on Google’s platform.

Ubisoft is now rolling out new licenses for games purchased by players on Google Stadia that work on Windows PCs. The transfer does not happen through codes, but rather automatically through Ubisoft Connect. From what we can tell, Ubisoft started this process sometime on Friday the 16th. December, and it is now happening on a broader basis.

We are not quite aware exact what triggers this transfer, but it appears to have your Ubisoft and Google Stadia accounts linked. In our own testing, we’re seeing Ubisoft games that were never actually played on Stadia appear on our account, which seems to support the theory that this is at an account level rather than a game-by-game level. You can link your Ubisoft and Stadia accounts through your Ubisoft account settings.

Personally, I didn’t buy many Ubisoft titles on Stadia, but I do see Immortals Fenyx Rising, Scott Pilgrim vs The World and two Monopoly titles showing up on my PC account and available for download on Windows. But other Ubisoft titles on my account like Uno, Family Feud, The Crew 2 and Trials Rising have yet to be transferred. Our Kyle Bradshaw was also able to confirm that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla had transferred to his account, although that was the only title he was watching at the time.

As far as we can tell, there’s no way to check if titles are coming from Stadia or not, or if this transfer even happened on your account, or if there are more games to be transferred. There is no message from Ubisoft on the matter.

We’ve reached out to both Google and Ubisoft for comment.

For those watching game transfer, it’s worth noting that save files will only come over if the game has cross-progression through Ubisoft Connect. This applies to games like Immortals, Assassin’s Creed titles and more. Games can only be played on PC for now, but other cloud services such as GeForce Now and Shadow should have access to them. Amazon Luna also now allows players to sync their Ubisoft libraries to the platform as long as they have a Prime subscription.

And of course, these games are essentially offered for free. Google refunds players all their money for game purchases, and Ubisoft does not charge for these transfers.
