Activision Blizzard pulls all games from GeForce Now a week after launch

Activision Blizzard games have been pulled from GeForce Now

This week, Activision Blizzard pulled its entire catalogue, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Overwatch, from the monthly subscription service.

Although Activision Blizzard are not required to tell NVIDIA why they want to do this, it means that players are suddenly left to find out that they can no longer stream their favorite Activision Blizzard games PC games on GeForce Now.

Activision is pulling all of their games from the streaming service without giving any reason at all. Still, what matters, at the end of the day, is that you won't be able to now stream your Blizzard and Activision games.

It's a little weird that Nvidia didn't sort out the requisite licencing before launching. At the same time, Blizzard has removed Warcraft 3: Reforged from AMD's Raise the Game Radeon GPU Bundle. Per NVIDIA's statement, the games are being pulled at Activision Blizzard's request however, no further information were given. Since you're paying for access to the service rather than specific content what you get for your hard-earned rands can change drastically overnight.

Hoping to play Overwatch on GeForce Now?

NVIDIA GeForce recently terminated its beta testing mode and has become available to the public with a minimal fee of $5 a month.

Nvidia is quick to point out there are still hundreds of supported games, and more than 1,500 are in the queue to be on-boarded. GeForce Now allows you to play all of your games on different devices via cloud.

NVIDIA have come out and said that they are working frantically behind the scenes to resolve "technical and business hurdles" which has caused Activision Blizzard to pull their support of GeForce Now. We're seeing the other side of the coin now - if a game publisher decides it doesn't want to support GeForce Now, you could lose access to the titles you've been playing. Meanwhile, Stadia requires players to buy games even if they already own them on other platforms. Gloating about the number of games seems less effective than it would have been last week, though.
