Google LLC revealed on Thursday that it will shut down its cloud gaming service Stadia on January 18, 2023, underling that the company expects to refund hardware and game purchases to users by mid-January of the next year.

"It hasn't gained the traction with users that we expected so we've made the difficult decision to begin winding down our Stadia streaming service," the company explained in a statement.

In July, Google asserted it will not be closing down the cloud gaming service. The company launched Stadia in 2019 which allowed its users to play games on a variety of platforms such as computers, phones, tablets, and TVs.
