Stadia, Google’s cloud-gaming platform, will shut down on January 18, 2023 – but Ubisoft is taking steps to ensure that the fun doesn’t end there. Whether you own Ubisoft games through Stadia or want to continue cloud gaming with Ubisoft+ Multi-Access, Ubisoft will help ease the transition to other platforms – and on games that feature cross-progression through Ubisoft Connect, such as Far Cry 6 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off on Stadia.
Ubisoft is giving you the PC versions of Ubisoft games you owned on Stadia at no extra cost, and these games will automatically be added to your library via Ubisoft Connect. Note that any virtual currency you have in your games won't transfer from Stadia to Ubisoft Connect or any other platform, so be sure to spend it before January 18, as the items you buy on games that have cross-progression will follow you. (To find out more about which games and content will be transferred to PC, check out our FAQ.)
If you subscribed to Ubisoft+ Multi-Access through Stadia, meanwhile, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to sign up directly via the Ubisoft+ website, along with a voucher for one free month* of Ubisoft+ access. Players who subscribed through Ubisoft in the US can also continue streaming Ubisoft+ games via Amazon Luna, while existing subscribers outside the US will receive a discount on Ubisoft+ Multi-Access for six months.**
All Ubisoft customers on Stadia, whether owners or subscribers, will also receive a coupon code for one free month of GeForce NOW Priority Membership, which will allow you to keep streaming Ubisoft games across a wide variety of devices.
More options are on the horizon for Ubisoft+ subscribers, as the service is headed to Xbox and PlayStation consoles in the future. In the meantime, find out more about the indie games recently added to Ubisoft+, and check out five games you may not have known are included with Ubisoft+.
*Subscription auto-renews at the regular monthly price unless cancelled prior to the expiration of the free month.
** Beginning with their first billing cycle after December 15th and for five additional billing cycles.
