GeForce Now Keeps „Bleeding:” Multiple Publishers Back Out Of The Service

Yet, a company decided to join the party – still, it seems Nvidia‘s game streaming service isn’t exactly in an outstanding situation.

GeForce Now has quit its four-year beta period nearly a quarter of a year ago. However, this week – after several other publishers left the service -, its support is getting reduced, as starting April 24, four companies decided to pull their games. They are Warner Bros., Codemasters, Klei Entertainment, and Xbox Game Studios. (At least Xbox Game Studios makes sense – Microsoft is working on Project xCloud, a streaming service that is slowly rolling out in Western Europe as well…)

„[…] Many of Ubisoft’s catalogue of AAA franchises, available both on Uplay and other supported game stores, are already streaming with GeForce NOW. With their support, we’re excited to announce that we’re adding the complete Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry series, starting today. More Ubisoft games will arrive in the coming weeks. […] As we prepare for commercial service in June, we’ll be adding and removing games through the end of May. […] 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. 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. In the meantime, look for Game Ready on GeForce NOW releases every Thursday, including larger batches throughout April and May. […]”, Nvidia’s announcement reads. Batman, Mortal Kombat, LEGO, Middle-Earth, Don’t Starve, F1, DiRT – some of the series and games that are leaving the service this Friday. More games are leaving it seems.

Still, Nvidia’s idea is wonderful: it allows you to stream games from the cloud from several of your game libraries (such as Steam) without having to buy them one more time. Perhaps that is why Take-Two (2K), Activision Blizzard, and Bethesda has left. It’s a decent competitor to the Google Stadia.
