Stadia has denied rumors that the platform would close at the end of the summer: “We are always working on bringing more games to the platform and Stadia Pro.”
In recent days, a rumor has circulated on the net that Stadia , Google’s cloud gaming service, would close at the end of the summer . It was a message shared with the Killed by Google account that set off the alarms: it ensured that the company intended to end the service as it has done with so many other platforms, and that although it did not have an exact date, it would be this year, in the coming months, when it would close. Finally it seems that this rumor was a lie, since the official Stadia account on Twitter has denied it .
It has not been a tweet specifically published to deny the rumor, but they have taken advantage of a user’s question to make it clear that they intend to continue betting on the cloud gaming platform: “It’s incredible that I have to ask this but, are you going to close? Said a Twitter follower. The official Stadia account has responded without hesitation: ” Stadia is not shutting down. Rest assured we’re always working on bringing more great games to the platform and Stadia Pro.“
Stadia even joked about the rumor of its closure
Before denying the rumor, the official Stadia account had already joked about the alleged leak using the same phrase from the false message to announce that Wavetale can be played for free until August 1 on Stadia Pro, a sign that the company does not he took such gossip too seriously. Still, many people continue to believe that the video game streaming service will shut down sooner rather than later, refusing to believe the official confirmations. It is not the first time that this has happened : at the beginning of the year they also had to deny that Google had left Stadia aside to focus on selling its cloud gaming technology.
Stadia is available on PC , iOS , Android , and other smart systems. Although in early 2021 it announced the closure of its video game development division , the platform continues to increase its catalog with third-party streaming games , free trials and monthly games for Stadia Pro members.
