In its latest GeForce NOW blog update, NVIDIA revealed that games from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, XBOX Game Studios, Codemasters, and Klei Entertainment will be removed from the game-streaming service on Friday, April 24. There’s some good news, though – those losses are being offset by Ubisoft, which has brought the complete Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry series to GeForce NOW. Those classic games are available to stream right now.
“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.”
GeForce NOW has faced plenty of hurdles since its launch, but NVIDIA points out that its catalog is still healthy and holding strong. In fact, 40 of the most-played games on Steam are available on the service – with 1,500 more games on the way. Bungie and Bandai Namco also seem pretty pleased with it.
“We’re already seeing a lot of our existing players take advantage of GeForce NOW to stream Destiny 2 so they can play anytime, anywhere with their friends,” said Gary Clay, director of Product Management at Bungie. “With Destiny 2 now free to play, we’re excited to partner with NVIDIA to introduce even more players — even those who previously couldn’t hit min spec — to our growing community of Guardians.”
“From Darks Souls III to Tekken 7, we’re seeing an increase in gamers that we can attribute to GeForce NOW,” said Katsuhiro Harada, executive producer at Bandai Namco. “The service is a great way for new players to experience our upcoming games, and for our existing players to continue enjoying them.”
