While there are several game streaming services available on the market today, NVIDIA’s GeForce Now was met with a lot of positive reviews when it launched last week. This is because unlike some other streaming platforms, GeForce Now allowed users to connect to their favorite stores and play games they already owned.
This is versus platforms like Google Stadia where users would need to purchase games through the service to play it. However, it seems the GeForce Now might have taken a hit because according to a post on the NVIDIA forums, Activision Blizzard has pulled its games from the streaming service.
According to the post, “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.” As a result, about 20 titles belonging to Activision Blizzard will no longer be accessible through GeForce Now.
Given that Activision Blizzard is home to some pretty major franchises like Call of Duty, Overwatch, and Hearthstand, this will no doubt have a huge impact on the service and could also affect customers who are thinking about signing up for it. It is unclear if and when Activision Blizzard games will be coming back, but it’s something to take note of if you plan to sign up for GeForce Now.
