Google is discontinuing its cloud gaming service Stadia.
Google has stated that it would discontinue Stadia, its streaming video gaming service, on January 18, 2023.
The internet search engine company has confirmed. Stadia "hasn't achieved the traction with customers that we expected" in a recent blog post.
As a consequence, the business has undertaken the "difficult" choice to start shutting down the platform.
Customers who bought gear or games via Google and Stadia will receive refunds.
"We appreciate the loyal Stadia players that have been with us all from the beginning.
All Stadia hardware purchase orders via the Google Store. As well as all game and add-on content purchases via the Stadia Store will be refunded."
Players can still explore their game collection and play until January 18.
