IO noted on Twitter that the studio is looking for ways to “continue your Hitman experience on other platforms” for Stadia players. While responsiveness is nice, in the end, all these announcements are statements of intent rather than fully formed action plans. It would be nice if Stadia players could continue to have their games on other platforms if possible, but for now we’re waiting for details on how that could happen.

It’s worth noting that Google promises full refunds on all purchases made on Stadia, which we’re sure many users will appreciate. While many other services have crashed without such a gesture, Stadia’s collapse still came as a surprise to many players, especially given that Google has promised updates to the service in the near future. However, the closure of Google’s own game studios in February 2021 seemed to herald a slow death for the service, and will finally come to fruition on January 18, 2023.
