It happened! Google Stadia is officially discontinued! – PIXELS.

A few moments ago we received the following message from Google regarding Stadia:

“For many years, Google has invested in various aspects of the gaming industry. We support developers in developing and distributing game apps on Google Play and Google Play Games. Game developers reach audiences around the world on YouTube through videos, live streaming, and shorts. And our cloud streaming technology ensures immersive gameplay at scale.

A few years ago, we also launched a consumer gaming service, Stadia. Stadia’s approach to streaming games for consumers, while built on a solid technological foundation, hasn’t garnered the user acceptance we expected, leading us to make the difficult decision to discontinue our Stadia streaming service.

Thank you to the dedicated Stadia players who have been with us from the start. We will refund all Stadia hardware purchases made through the Google Store, as well as game and add-on content purchases made through the Stadia Store. Players will continue to have access to their game library and complete their final game sessions through January 18, 2023. We expect the majority of refunds to be completed by mid-January 2023. Visit our Help Center for more details on this process.

The underlying technology platform that powers Stadia is proven at scale and goes beyond gaming. We see clear opportunities to apply this technology to other areas of Google such as YouTube, Google Play and our Augmented Reality (AR) efforts – as well as making it available to our industry partners, which we believe represents the future of gaming. We remain committed to gaming and will continue to invest in new tools, technologies and platforms that fuel the success of developers, industry partners, cloud customers and creatives.

For the Stadia team, building and supporting Stadia has been driven from the very beginning by the same passion for games that our players have. Many of the Stadia team members will continue this work in other areas of the company. We are very grateful for the team’s groundbreaking work and look forward to continuing to make an impact on the gaming and other industries with Stadia’s foundational streaming technology.”
