Despite the painful closure of Google Stadia, there may be light at the end of the tunnel.
The closure of Google Stadia has led to an avalanche of problems: exclusive games left in mid-development, people using Stadia as their main gaming platform, and many more. But, what has happened to a content creator doesn’t even make sense.
Colour, a content creator on YouTube and Twitch, will lose almost 6,000 hours of progress on Red Dead Redemption 2 because of Stadia’s closure. This is especially problematic since Google has not yet confirmed whether it will be possible to migrate games and game time to other platforms.
An unfortunate problem after the closure of Stadia
Although many people may not think so, Stadia had positioned itself as a very important platform for gaming via streaming. Therefore, the decision to shut down Stadia has caused quite a stir this past week and resulted in a few Stadia eulogies. At least so far on Google’s part, there has not been a good resolution of many problems after the closure.
Many questions are still up in the air after the shutdown. Will it be possible to migrate games? Will the money for microtransactions in Stadia games be refunded? The answer is seemingly yes since Google confirmed that they will refund games and add-on content, but are they exceptions? Also, what will happen to many Stadia exclusives?
But, what has happened to the content creator Colour has been very unfortunate. This RDR2 content creator will lose Stadia progress from that game with almost 6000 hours of progress. As you can see, the content creator has reflected on this through a Twitter thread. It’s a thread where we would not only be seeing proof of this, but we can also see the user requesting Rockstar to migrate his characters.
Just as it has happened to Colour, there are thousands of players who are going through the same situation. That’s why through social networks we can see so many people requesting the migration of their games. This is a serious problem, not only because of the monetary investment but also because of the time investment. It’s a very unfortunate situation that may not be answered.
