Google officially denied the speculation that its Stadia gaming service would soon shut down, saying that it is still working on getting more big games onto the platform. In the past few days, there has been some speculation claiming Google is planning to shut down its Stadia, the cloud-based gaming service, later this year.
In recent days, a rumor has been circulating online, that Stadia, Google’s cloud gaming service, will shut down by the end of summer. Stadia, Google’s cloud-based gaming service, has been on some form of deathwatch pretty much since its launch, thanks to confusing marketing campaigns, reports of technical issues, and a lack of some very basic features during its launch.
Earlier this week, speculation began circulating that Google Stadia its cloud-based gaming service was going to shut down, but Google has now addressed said speculation and assured that they will keep Stadia running. In fact, Google is working to get more games into its cloud-based Stadia streaming and gaming services early. Last month, new reports suggested both The Quarry and High On Life were initially going to release as the lead titles for Google Stadia.
Fit, it seems, has been urging users of its cloud gaming service to send Google tweets seeking answers on the future of the service. The rumors led to people asking Google if a shutdown was in the cards, to which Google’s official Stadia account responded by saying there were no plans for a shutdown of the service. Reports claimed tech giant Google will be closing down their cloud gaming platform, Stadia, later this summer, and will be doing it using the same strategy they used with Google Play Music.
Amid speculation that Stadia is about to close, Google said that more big games are coming to Stadia. Amid further speculation about its demise, Google Stadia picked up two new games this week, including the classic “Neighbors From Hell”. While it is a rumor, it is possible that it will become a reality, considering the way Google has been inclined to kill off a lot of Google services.
An extremely flimsy rumor goes on to say that Google will not essentially move its services or servers to any of its competitors, but rather, will be doing something similar to what they did with Google Play Music. Google has also opened Stadia for licensing to other companies. What will be the future of Stadia is still remained to be seen.
