Google Will Shut Down Stadia and Refund Gamers

Google has announced plans to discontinue and refund users of its Stadia cloud gaming service.

When Stadia launched in November 2019, it was billed as a "Netflix for games," allowing players to stream games online without owning a console.

However, due to a lack of "traction" among gamers, the service will now be discontinued on January 18, 2023.

Google has promised refunds to Stadia controller purchasers, as well as any games or add-on content.

Stadia games are hosted on servers at Google data centres around the world, with video footage being streamed to a TV or mobile device.
