A recent leak might have revealed the release date of Google Stadia. The details were picked by a Reddit user who happened to order a Wasabi controller, the same controller that will is going to be used on Google Stadia. It appears that the delivery date of the controller is on November 12, which, to many gamers is the same date that Google Stadia will be accessible and operational to all.

The delivery date of the Wasabi controller on the Canadian Google Store is the latest piece of evidence that gamers and fans used to point the official release date of Google Stadia. The much-awaited cloud gaming service by the search engine giant has no official release date at the moment. But, it is already a general knowledge that Google Stadia will use Wasabi as its controller.

Initially, the Wasabi controller of Google Stadia was only available in select regions, but the search engine giant announced on Twitter recently that it will be available to all regions. The controller is available in clear white and plain black color variants. Those who availed the Google Stadia Founder's Edition will have the option to choose the dark blue color variant.

Considering that Google Stadia is slated to arrive on November 2020, those who ordered the Wasabi controller at Google Store will not immediately receive it. This is why when the Reddit user ordered and learned that the controller would arrive on November, he assumed that it might be the same date that the Google Stadia will be officially released. Google Stadia is the cloud-based gaming service, just like Steam, that Google announced during this year's E3.

Since then, the upcoming gaming service already received positive feedback from the gaming community, although it will not likely operate in the same manner as the Epic Game Store. Interestingly, other cloud-based gaming services are currently working hand in hand with Google Stadia to allow its users to access their service, which includes Ubisoft's UPlay. Although it has been previously hinted that the cloud-based gaming service from Google will be released in November, no specific date was known until now.

The latest Reddit post is in no way a confirmation of the official release date of Google Stadia. We advise you to take these details with a pinch of salt and with skepticism. But, a mid-November release would be a perfect time for Google Stadia to arrive considering that it is near the holiday season just in time to major title releases.
