GeForce Now: Another Publisher Decided To Leave

Activision Blizzard slammed the door behind itself, and now, another publisher quit GeForce Now.

GeForce Now has quit beta roughly three weeks ago after being in beta for more than four years, but Nvidia‘s experimental cloud streaming service (where we can stream multiple of our supported game libraries without rebuying the game) can’t seem to get a break. Activision Blizzard’s leave was due to a misunderstanding according to Nvidia (we wrote about it), but now, one AAA publisher follows the other, as the staff announced on their forums that we have to bid farewell to most Bethesda games.

„Please be advised most Bethesda Softworks titles will be removed from the GeForce NOW service today. Wolfenstein Youngblood will remain for all members. Founders members can continue to experience the game with RTX On,” they wrote.

So The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, DOOM, Dishonored, The Evil Within, and Prey franchises have all left Nvidia’s cloud streaming service, and most of the Wolfenstein games have also been made unavailable. The one exception from Bethesda is Wolfenstein: Youngblood from last summer. We don’t understand why this game is the sole remnant of the publisher on GeForce Now.

Nvidia quickly mentioned that Cyberpunk 2077, which was planned to launch this Spring, is going to launch on September 17 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC, and it will be on GeForce Now from day one. (CD Projekt RED’s game will also be available on GOG in a DRM-free format in case you want to discover Night City completely offline.) Something good in the sea of bad.

Nvidia promised that another 1500 or so games will be added to GeForce Now, but if such AAA companies decide to leave, then it doesn’t paint the GPU manufacturer in a good light.
