Just 3 years after its initial announcement, Google will put an end to the Stadia Project, completely shutting down the servers starting with the next one 18 January 2023.

Google StadiaAccording to what was announced by Phil Harrison (General Manager of Stadia) in a post from official blogusers who purchased the hardware and any software or subscription will be refunded, and will be able to continue to use the service until it is closed.

"We made the difficult decision to start the path that will lead us to close our Stadia streaming service", explains Harrison after illustrating the long path taken by the American giant to invest in the video game sector and in innovation in Cloud technologies applied to gaming.

Behind the decision to close Stadia, Harrison admits, there is the simple observation that "the service has not achieved the success with the public that we expected despite the solid technological foundations on which we built Stadia".
