Ubisoft Announces Plans For Stadia Users After Its Planned Closure
Earlier this year, Google announced that its video game platform, Google Stadia, will shut down on January 18th, 2023. The platform started off with a lot of hype but quickly died down for various reasons. Ahead of the impending closure of the platform, Ubisoft has announced its plans for owners of games on the platform, including transfers to PC and more.
Via its release, the company stated, “Ubisoft is giving you the PC versions of Ubisoft games you owned on Stadia at no extra cost, and these games will automatically be added to your library via Ubisoft Connect.” Furthermore, players are encouraged to spend any virtual currency they own in the games prior to January 18th, as the items will appear on games that feature cross-progression.
Additionally, all Ubisoft customers on Stadia will be rewarded with a free month of GEForce Now Monthly Membership, which will allow streaming games across a wide variety of devices. Moreover, players will be given the opportunity to sign up for one of the company’s various subscription services, with a lot of benefits.
Google Stadia is a cloud gaming service developed by mega corporation Google and it publicly launched in 2019. Players were able to enjoy their favorite titles at any time through a cloud based system, however the company announced its closure as the vision never got off the ground.
