Nvidia’s streaming service GeForce NOW’s game library has been bleeding titles. Large companies such as 2k Games have removed their games from the service. Xbox Game Studios, Warner Bros, Codemasters, and Klei Entertainment are next to remove their games. All are set to be removed on April 24th. The blog post did reassure that Epic Games, Valve, Bungie and Bandai Namco are continuing to support GeForce NOW. Ubisoft is also currently supporting the service, adding Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry with more titles on the way.
With the loss of the four companies on the 24th, popular titles such Mortal Kombat, Lord of the Rings, LEGO, Dirt will be gone with no hint on coming back on the future, despite Nvidia promising to work with the companies to bring their games back to the service. Nvidia’s GeForce has lost a total of seven large studios, 2K, Bethesda, and Activision-Blizzard being the other three. Although, Nvidia promises to work on bringing them back to the service as well.
Nvidia promises to users of GeForce NOW that large batches of new titles will be announced throughout April and May. While Epic Games has promised to fully support GeForce and other large studios are continuing to work with the Nvidia, it is possible that more studios will be leaving, taking their games with them. GeForce NOW’s competitor Google Stadia also suffered from a small library at its launch. The difference is that Stadia did not launch with a large library while GeForce has been slowly losing them. Unlike Stadia, GeForce now still has some of Steam’s most popular games such as Mount&Blade: Bannerlord, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Hearts of Iron IV and Rust.
Nvidia remains hopeful that more developers will come to GeForce NOW, with more studios eventually sharing their vision for GeForce NOW.
