There have been rumors running amok on social media lately that Google Stadia is on its last legs and about to vanish forever. For those that love the great games available on it, the news sent them all into dismay and shock. A representative of Google stepped forward with a Tweet to confidently inform everyone that it’s not true.
According to some social media trolls, whose names will go unmentioned to prevent more fame heading their way, Google held meetings to discuss Stadia’s future. The statements mentioned old coworkers and that Stadia would sing its last song later this year. The giant tech company decided to head to Twitter to calm everyone’s concerns.
Apparently, more is coming to Stadia and Stadia Pro, so you can throw any talk of the platform vanishing out the window. While the rumor doesn’t even have many sources, it’s crazy how wildly it spread over Twitter and Reddit. It once again points to how unhealthy these social media portals can be when used incorrectly.
It’s like those fake news posts that a famous celebrity has died, causing the said celebrity to raise an eyebrow while sipping champagne in a bubble bath during his/her vacation in Spain. The hilarious part is that the posters of the fake news don’t even care when they’ve been proved wrong. They simply continue to spout nonsense with no concrete evidence to receive thousands of likes, retweets, and comments.
The point is that Google Stadia is here to stay, in whichever form comes next for the gaming platform. It’s not the first time these concerns have been raised, as we saw a similar situation in January this year when Google assured us that Stadia still has a bright future ahead.
