German telco Deutsche Telekom has revealed that it will discontinue its cloud gaming service, MagentaGaming, on February 26 2022.
Since its launch two and a half years ago, MagentaGaming has been used as a service to facilitate the streaming of cloud games. The service offered over 120 games across multiple devices, including Garfield Kart, Gravel, and Ghostrunner.
MagentaGaming has operated across a range of devices, including mobile, with features including multiplayer functionality and achievements.
Streaming service swansong
For this final month of service, MagentaGaming operators have said that they will not be charging customers. The storefront was closed earlier this week, but for now, customers can continue to play games they previously purchased.
