With the closing of Stadia fast approaching, Google has already run through plenty of refunds for Stadia game purchases and now they're moving onto Stadia Hardware refunds.
I have now received refunds for all of my Stadia game purchases, and just recently a fresh email entered my inbox from Google about Stadia Hardware. In the email it reiterated the January 18th, 2023 shutdown date and mentioned Google Store purchases of Stadia Hardware will be refunded "within two weeks" (from November 30th). So if you're waiting on the refund, you might want to keep an eye out soon.
For any issues on refunds, you'll get an email on how to proceed with an alternative account to get the money.
Stadia have a bunch of info in their FAQ.
Did you game on Stadia and want to move progress over? So far Ubisoft, Bungie, I/O Interactive, CD Projekt Red, Rockstar Games and Bethesda have already shared plans on that but it's down to each developer and publisher to sort it.
What a massive shame for a once promising Cloud Gaming service, Google just had no real idea of what they were doing or what the industry actually truly wanted. Thankfully, Cloud Gaming fans still have the likes of GeForce NOW, Xbox Cloud Gaming and Luna.
