Google Stadia is one of the platforms where you can play video games. Since its launch in 2019, the gaming community has been hoping to see Google compete with the other giants. However, it seems that everything didn’t go as planned as Phil Harrison, Stadia Vice President and General Manager, announced that Stadia will be discontinuing its service early next year.
The Stadia shutdown announcement was revealed in a blog post published earlier today. According to the details, Stadia players will still be able to access Stadia’s game library until January 18, 2023. While this is bad news, Google will be offering a full refund for all Stadia purchases made through the Google Store. In addition, all game and in-game content purchased via the Stadia Store will also be refunded.
There is no specific timeframe when you will receive the refund. However, they are expecting that most of the refunds will be made by mid-January 2023. The Google Stadia team has also expressed their gratitude and appreciation to everyone who supported the project.
