Google assured that they are still planning on supporting the Stadia platform.

Since its launch in 2019, Google’s proprietary cloud gaming platform, Google Stadia, hasn’t exactly lit the gaming world on fire. Aside from an occasional announcement of a major release coming to the platform alongside other platforms, the service has been quietly running in the background to little fanfare. This is why, when a rumor began circulating last week that Google may bring the platform to a close, it seemed a little more plausible.

“Long story short Google is beginning their exit plan,” reads the rumor, circulated by the Killed by Google Twitter. “They did not have an exact date that end of service will happen, but they did say by the end of summer. He also mentioned that they will not be transferring their services or servers to any other competition per se, and it will be much like they did with Google Play Music, same exit approach and strategy.”

“He also mentioned that all members would be informed 30-60 days before, and that the last month of service will be refunded and no charge for its usage. Also, any available subscription months will be refunded fully to your linked bank account.”

When users asked if Stadia was packing it in, though, Google assured that it was just a rumor. “Stadia is not shutting down,” the official Stadia Twitter account said. “Rest assured we’re always working on bringing more great games to the platform and Stadia Pro.”
