As I understand it, Orcs 3 is a timed exclusive on Stadia.
I don't have a lot of faith in Stadia as a platform or service, but I'm definitely looking forward to Orcs Must Die! 3. I liked the first game and LOVED the second game.
I just hope that map editing becomes a feature in the 3rd game, it's been requested eversince the series started--I don't even care if the player maps are up to par in visual quality with the core maps, it would just be nice to have as an option.

It also only exists because of Stadia, too. 1 and 2 were among my favorite games. Never even bothered with Unchained, like so many fans. Seems they wanted something bigger and with more consistent revenue, but alienated everyone.

From what I understand, they were on the verge of collapse until Google threw money at them to make 3. It's the only reason the product, and the studio, is around. So I'm perfectly happy with this timed exclusive.

Thats about the only upside I see. I don't have much faith they won't screw things up still. I'm surprised they didn't up the co-op to 4 players.
