Welcome to Sunday Stadia Stats! The weekly blog post where we discuss Stadia player, game and community numbers. You can find all the updated numbers over at stadiastats.com. Below is a summary of the most interesting numbers of the week.
Before diving in, it is important to point out that these numbers are best compared to others in the nascent cloud gaming space (NVIDIA GFN, Amazon Luna, ShadowPC etc.).
The biggest news of the week is that, as we continue to track the Dirt 5 leaderboard growth on Stadia, it cruised passed 100,000 Stadians. As of late Saturday it was at ~105,000. Just as interestingly, it continues to grow at over 1,000 names a day!
I’d caution against reading too much into this other than what it is – the number of Stadia players who finished the first career race in Dirt 5. It represents an unknowably small fraction of the total Stadia Pro subscribers and Stadia players in general.
The Crew 2 leaderboard has been growing at over 150 Stadians a day for the past few weeks and is now sitting right at about 75K.
We also started tracking participation in the weekly Crew 2 live summit. Here is how the number of summit event finishers varies from week to week. Should be fun to track this over the course of a year or so.
The FIFA 22 online Seasons leaderboard has grown by over 1,000 Stadians in each of the last two weeks!
Stadia continues to hold its own against other cloud gaming platforms in terms of the availability of top selling games (based on GFK top 40).
Last week we pointed out that @GoogleStadia was growing pretty well on Instagram. They were quiet there for a month or so, but are now back with new posts. We’ve also been tracking the most liked post per week.
As we previously discussed, a major contributor to the growth in Stadia at the end of 2020 was the release of the platform in new territories. It’ll be interesting to see how all these metrics change if Stadia expands in 2022.
