Google Stadia is officially shutting down early next year. What will happen to those who have played Destiny 2 on the platform? Well, Bungie responded, and long story short, there’s nothing to worry about. But if you want to learn more, read on.

End of an Era

Before anything, Stadia is Google’s cloud gaming platform where you can stream and play different games, including Destiny 2, without a bonafide console. Instead, you’ll only need Chromecast Ultra and Android TV devices if you’re using Smart TV or the Google Chrome web browser if you’re on a PC.

Yesterday, Phil Harrison, Vice President and General Manager of Stadia, announced that the company made the difficult decision to wind down its streaming service after years of not gaining enough traction.

Because some people have played Destiny 2 on Stadia, they will be affected by the shutdown of the said cloud gaming platform. Fortunately, Bungie has responded to fans.

Bungie stated in a tweet that it has learned about the plan to shut Stadia down, so the company already started conversations about the next steps for Destiny 2 players. According to the company: “We will announce and send out information regarding Destiny 2 Stadia accounts once we have a plan of action.”

If you have played the game on Stadia, just be on the lookout for an email from Bungie sometime in the future.
