Following Activision Blizzard removing NVidia GeForce NOW access to a number of their games, the cloud gaming platform continued to expand and grow their library of titles without incidents. However, on Monday the company has announced that it is losing access to more titles as Xbox Game Studios and Warner Bros. pull out from the service:
Games from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, XBOX Game Studios, Codemasters and Klei Entertainment will be removed from the service on Friday, April 24. We hope they’ll return in the future.
That means players will not be able to access such titles as Halo, Gears of War, Batman: Arkham and Mortal Kombat.
“As we prepare for commercial service in June, we’ll be adding and removing games through the end of May,” Phil Eisler, Nvidia’s vice president of GeForce Now, writes in the blog post. “Behind the scenes, we’re working with digital game stores so publishers can tag their games for streaming on GeForce Now, right when they publish a game. This will help us bring more games to the library, quicker, as well as provide a more stable catalog. We’re transitioning as many games to GeForce Now as possible over this time. For those leaving, we’ll give gamers as much notice as possible.”
On the other hand, Ubisoft wholly supports the service, bringing even more games to NVidia GeForce NOW, including the complete Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry series.
“Ubisoft fully supports NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW with complete access to our PC games from the Ubisoft Store or any supported game stores,” said Chris Early, senior vice president partnerships at Ubisoft. “We believe it’s a leading-edge service that gives current and new PC players a high-end experience with more choice in how and where they play their favorite games.”
