Google Stadia is shutting down soon, so transfer your games and saves while you can

Google Stadia, the company’s short-lived cloud gaming service, will be discontinued for good on January 18. (Specifically, Jan. 18 at 11:59 p.m. PT, Google spokesperson Patrick Seybold confirmed The edge.) While the shutdown means you’re about to lose access to all your titles and savings on Stadia, many publishers have shared ways to transfer your purchases and progress to other platforms so you can keep playing your games.

We’ve rounded up some of those options below; if you want to transfer what you can, you may want to start those processes soon. (If I forgot any, email me and I can add them.)

PS: Google will also reimburse all Stadia software purchases from the Stadia Store and hardware purchases from the Google Store. The company began processing refunds in November and expects to process the “majority” of refunds by January 18, so keep an eye on your email for confirmation.
