Google is (unsurprisingly) shutting down Stadia in January

Despite claims to the contrary, Google only shut down its game streaming service Stadia in July. The company says players will be able to access and play their games until January 18, 2023. After that, Stadia will join the long, long list of products that have been killed by Google.

Those who invested money in Stadia will be fully reimbursed. “We will refund all Stadia hardware purchases made through the Google Store, as well as game and add-on content purchases made through the Stadia Store,” Google wrote in a blog post. “We expect most refunds to be completed by mid-January 2023. For more details on this process for players, visit our help center.”

The rationale for the “difficult decision” is not surprising. Google said the service “didn’t gain the traction it expected from users.” It’s a shame as the streaming technology at the core of Stadia works really well and the service had a passionate, albeit small, community.
