Recently, a user on Twitter commented on Stadia’s post, saying, “*sigh* (amazing I really have to ask this), are you guys shutting down soon? 🙄” To this, Google responded by saying that this was not true. Google Stadia said on Twitter that it won’t be shutting down. In fact, the gaming platform is working on a few new games that will be rolling out on the platform soon.

After that, Google Stadia also tweeted that Stadia Pro users can play the Wavetale game for free until August 1.

The rumor mill was ignited when a post in a Stadia Facebook group announced that the platform was about to shut down. It was later revealed by a Facebook group moderator that the comment came from a user “Donny Jepp” who “has been making sarcastic posts on Stadia for months” and has been banned.
