GeForce NOW is NVidia’s cloud-gaming platform that recently came out of beta testing. With the successful launch already done, the next step for the platform is to increase the number of the games available in the catalog – or remove them if such is the wish of the publisher. That is exactly what happened to a number of Activision Blizzard games.
A representative of NVidia’s staff has taken to the forums to reveal that Activision Blizzard games such as World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Diablo III had to be taken out of the library due to the request from the company:
As we take GeForce NOW to the next step in its evolution, we’ve worked with publishers to onboard a robust catalog of your PC games. This means continually adding new games, and on occasion, having to remove games – similar to other digital service providers. Per their request, please be advised Activision Blizzard games will be removed from the service. While unfortunate, we hope to work together with Activision Blizzard to reenable these games and more in the future. In addition to the hundreds of games currently supported, we have over 1,500 games that developers have asked to be on-boarded to the service. Look for weekly updates as to new games we are adding.
