The closure of Google Stadia that will take place on January 18, a surprise even for developers, puts some exclusive games on the platform in jeopardy. And with cyberpunk 2077 as one of Stadia’s most successful releases, many gamers they ask CD Projekt RED to recover or export the progress of the action RPG to other versions.
Social networks and forums have begun to move to ask the Polish developer for an easy way to continue their game in Night City on other systems, especially now that cyberpunk 2077 has regained popularity after the premiere of the anime edgerunner. “Can CD Projekt RED make Stadia cloud save available? I’m more interested in my save game than the money back“says a post on Reddit.
Since the news from Google has been sudden, even for studios with games released or yet to be released on Stadia, CD Projekt RED has not announced at the moment an option for the players of cyberpunk 2077.

Answers on Reddit have come up with a workaround for those still immersed in cyberpunk 2077 of Google Stadia and do not want to lose the game. It consists of using Google Takeout, a service that allows you to retrieve data from Google platforms, and apparently there are players who have downloaded their game to import it into the Steam or GoG versions, and from there to other platforms. However, not everyone has achieved it this way, so the community is still waiting for an answer from CD Projekt RED.
cyberpunk 2077 has exceeded 20 million copies sold and you have exceeded the number of concurrent users of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Steam, so the poor initial reception for its performance on PS4 and Xbox One has not prevented it from achieving good sales.
