At the time of the shutdown announcement, Google committed to refunding hardware and software purchases, and it began software refunds earlier this month. Once your hardware refund has been issued, you’ll get an email confirmation, Google said in Wednesday’s email. Google expects the “majority” of Stadia refunds to be processed by the January 18th shutdown date.
Once Stadia shuts down, you won’t be able to play games on the service anymore. However, a few developers, including Bethesda and CD Projekt Red, have spelled out how you can bring your Stadia saves over to other platforms.
