Good night, sweet prince.

Google has announced it is winding down its Stadia video game streaming service.

In a new blog, the search engine company revealed that Stadia “hasn't gained the traction with users that we expected,” and as a result, the company has made the “difficult” decision to begin winding down the service. Google will be refunding users who purchased either hardware or games from Google and Stadia.

“We're grateful to the dedicated Stadia players that have been with us from the start. We will be refunding all Stadia hardware purchases made through the Google Store, and all game and add-on content purchases made through the Stadia Store.”
