Stadia will be shut down by Google in January 2023 -Google is ending its cloud gaming service called Stadia. Players will be able to use the service until January 18, 2023. Google will give all Stadia hardware bought through the Google Store and all games and add-ons bought from the Stadia store a full refund. Google thinks that these refunds will be finished by the middle of January.

Phil Harrison, vice president and general manager of Stadia, said in a blog post, “A few years ago, we also launched a consumer gaming service called Stadia.” “And while Stadia’s way of streaming games to users was based on solid technology, it hasn’t caught on with users the way we thought it would, so we’ve made the hard decision to start shutting down our Stadia streaming service.” The employees on the Stadia team will be moved to other parts of the company.

Harrison wrote that Google sees ways to use Stadia’s technology in other parts of the company, like YouTube, Google Play, and its augmented reality projects. The company also plans to “make it available to our industry partners,” which is in line with where it thinks the future of gaming is going.

In a FAQ, Google explained some of the smaller details of the shutdown. Refunds will be made automatically through the Google and Stadia stores, and you won’t have to send back any hardware. You won’t be able to get a refund on your Stadia Pro subscription, but you won’t be charged during the shutdown period and you can still play any games you got as a Pro user until everything is shut down. Google has shut down the Stadia store, so you can no longer buy games or things to do in games.

The writing has been on the wall for Stadia for a while now. Most recently, when Logitech announced its new cloud gaming handheld last week, Stadia was one of the few cloud gaming services that wasn’t mentioned. But there have been rumours that Stadia is going to shut down almost since the beginning. Google usually ends projects just a few years after they start, and Stadia, a cloud gaming service from a company with few ties to the gaming industry, seemed like a prime candidate for an early end.

Last year, there were rumours that it would close down because the number of games coming out for the platform had dropped and the company had shut down its own game development studios. When these rumours came up again this year, Google said Stadia was not going away. In a tweet, the company said, “You can be sure that we’re always working to bring more great games to the platform and Stadia Pro.” Which one was right… until today.

Microsoft, which has also put a lot of money into cloud gaming, didn’t want to say anything. Nvidia, which makes the cloud gaming service GeForce Now, and AT&T, which used Stadia technology to run a couple game trials, didn’t respond right away to requests for comment.
