Nvidias GeForce Now is losing all Activision Blizzard games, a bad sign for cloud gaming
See the original posting on The Verge
Nvidias GeForce Now feels like one of the very best ways to get a free taste of cloud gaming, but its got a gigantic catch it lets you play PC games you already own only if the game publisher allows it. Today, Nvidia is revealing that Activision Blizzard is no longer playing ball, pulling down its catalog of games including Overwatch, WoW, and the Call of Duty series.
That means one of the services biggest publishers, as well as its Battle.net catalog of games, will no longer be available just a week after the services formal launch a launch that was already missing many games from Capcom, EA, Konami, Remedy, Rockstar and Square Enix, all of which seemed to have pulled out after Nvidias beta period ended.
Nvidia wouldnt tell…
