The closure of Google Stadia has caused many headaches for developers and players. Fortunately, this is Bethesda’s solution for The Elder Scrolls Online.
Google announced on September 29 the closure of Stadia and all its gaming services. It was a hard blow for the players of the platform, as well as developers who did not know anything until that day. They didn’t even wait for the launch of FIFA 23, a real bombshell.
This causes many players to lose their save games. There are really bloody cases, like the user who will lose more than 6000 hours played in Red Dead Redemption 2/Red Dead Online.
Fortunately, some companies have already reacted to the closure of Stadia, as is the case with Bethesda. If you remember, the creators of The Elder Scrolls migrated their PC services to Steam.
