In the wake of Google officially announcing that it’s closing down its streaming platform, Stadia, players were left wondering what would happen to their save data and if it would be possible to transfer it to other platforms. While companies like Ubisoft, Bungie and IO Interactive are currently working on ways to make this happen, CD Projekt Red has already offered a method to transfer your Cyberpunk 2077 saves from Stadia to PC and consoles.
CD Projekt Red has released a full guide on how to transfer your Cyberpunk 2077 save data on Stadia to PC and consoles using Google Takeout. Players will then be given the option to use cross progression on any of the PC plaforms and sync it with a GOG account. This will allow players to smoothly transfer their progression to consoles as well.

Google announced that it plans to shut down Stadia in early 2023. It originally launched on 19 November 2019, offering ways for players to stream games via the cloud on multiple devices without the need for expensive hardware. On paper, it’s a great idea but Google was simply too early on the concept to really take off as it required decent internet speeds to get the most out of it – something that a majority of countries haven’t entirely adopted yet.
Reports initially surfaced about Google closing Stadia back in August, but the company quickly released a statement confirming that it won’t be shutting down. That seemed to age poorly as Google announced a few weeks ago that it will, in fact, be closing the doors on Stadia and relegating it to the number of failed Google projects.
While Stadia players wait for other publishers to offer ways to transfer saves from the service before its demise, you can now enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 on other platforms with your progression still intact.
