Google officially denied the speculation that its Stadia gaming service would soon shut down
Google formally refuted rumors that Stadia would soon shut down, stating that it is actively trying to bring additional high-profile games to the platform. Recently, there have been rumors that Google is going to shut down Stadia, its cloud-based gaming service, towards the end of the year. Online rumors have recently been claiming that Google’s cloud gaming service Stadia will shut down by the end of the summer. Because of its confusing marketing strategies, allegations of technological difficulties, and the absence of some very basic functions at launch, Stadia, Google’s cloud-based gaming service, has been under some sort of deathwatch pretty much since it launched.
Earlier this week, rumors surfaced that Google Stadia, its cloud-based gaming service, might be shutting down. Google has since addressed these rumors and reaffirmed its commitment to keeping Stadia operational. In fact, Google is working to add more titles to its Stadia cloud-based gaming and streaming services as soon as possible. Both The Quarry and High On Life were reportedly planned to launch as the lead titles for Google Stadia, according to fresh sources from last month.
It appears that Fit, it appears, has been advising customers of its cloud gaming service to tweet Google for information on the program’s future. Because of the rumors, some users questioned Google about whether a shutdown was planned. Google’s official Stadia account replied that there were no plans to shut down the service. According to reports, internet giant Google will shut down its cloud gaming service, Stadia, later this summer and will follow the same procedure it used to shut down Google Play Music.
Google said that more major titles are coming to Stadia amid rumors that the service is ready to shut down. Google Stadia added two new titles this week, including the timeless “Neighbors From Hell,” despite continued rumors of its doom. Even if it is only a rumor, it has a chance of being true given Google’s propensity to discontinue several of its services.
Further, according to a very tenuous report, Google won’t actually relocate its servers or services to any of its rivals but instead, follow a similar strategy to what it did with Google Play Music. Google has made Stadia available for licensing to other businesses. It remains to be seen how Stadia will develop in the future.
