GeForce Now, the game streaming service Nvidia, which was launched from beta last month, has lost another major player in its offering. Titles from the colossal publisher 2K Games are the newest to be taken from the subscription service.
"At the publisher's request, the 2K Games titles will be removed from GeForce today," Nvidia announced in its forums. "We work with 2K Games to re-enable their games in the future."
The publisher's game repertoire includes well-known series such as BioShock, Borderlandsand NBA 2K. Streaming-friendly turn-based series such as Civilization and XCOM also fall under the umbrella of the company, which can be the biggest losses for the relocation service.
The deletion arrives just a few weeks after Bethesda Softworks had pulled almost all of its games from the GeForce Now network, leaving only Wolfenstein: Youngblood behind. Just before that, Activision Blizzard also deleted its game selection. Losing these major publishers is certainly a huge loss to the streaming service and can be just the start of an exodus for AAA games.
Unlike other cloud game services such as Google Stages, GeForce Now uses game licenses that subscribers already own through platforms such as Steam without having to buy them again. For $ 4.99 per month, Nvidia lets these games stream to Windows, macOS, Shield and Android devices via their own servers.
