Years ago, companies were still exploring the possibility of using Android beyond mobile devices. Ouya was such a company where the company launched an Android gaming console where it quickly became a crowdfunding darling. However, things turned sour fast due to the delays, which ultimately resulted in Ouya being bought over by Razer.

Razer hasn’t really done much with its acquisition since then, and with the rise of game streaming, it’s not surprising to learn that the company has since decided to shut it down. Razer has announced that they will be shutting Ouya down on the 25th of June, 2019 and that after that date, gamers will no longer be able to access their account or their games.

In a post on Razer’s support page, “Your account will be deactivated on June 25, 2019. After this date, you will no longer be able to access your account, games on the server, previously purchased titles, or be able to purchase new ones. You will continue to have access to games that have been downloaded. Users should download games before June 25, 2019 to avoid losing access after the shutdown.”

Razer also notes that while some games might continue to be playable, your mileage may vary as there are some games that will need purchase validation upon launch, and since access to the service will be cut off, they can’t be validated and thus cannot be played.
