google stadia: Google denies shutting down its Stadia cloud gaming service

Tech giant Google refuted a claim that it would shut down its cloud gaming platform Stadiumsstating that it is “always working on bringing more great games to the platform”.

The company said after a rumor started circulating earlier this week suggesting it would be terminating the platform later this year, Engadget reports.

“Stadia is not closing,” the official Stadia Twitter account told a concerned fan in a tweet spotted by PC Gamer.

“Rest assured, we are always working to bring more great games to the platform and Pro Stadium,” he added.

Some Stadia fans were convinced that Google would finally disconnect the service after Cody Ogden of Killed by Google fame, a Twitter account and blog that follows the company’s ever-expanding graveyard, shared a post from a group of fans on Facebook.

According to the post, a “former colleague and friend” told the poster that Google recently hosted a meeting to discuss the future of Stadia – or lack thereof.
