While this news might be sad for players who were about to purchase them. This is, however, even more, sadden for those who already purchased these games, and intended to Stream them over GeForce now. Nvidia offers a cloud gaming service, which means a rental of fast gaming pc to play these titles remotely.
Considering many players who bought this now cannot play on their own PC’s. There is a reason why players subscribed to GeForce Now is pretty simple. Their own PC’s were not good enough hence they wanted to run it on remote PC. Furthermore, Nvidia only offers a subscription not free games, thus players had to buy these games separately and run them on subscription.
Why would Activision Blizzard withdraw their games?
Now there are a lot of reasons why Activision Blizzard did this. Firstly, they might have been offered a better deal by rivals Google Stadia. Secondly, they could have been upset with Nvidia on some other matter, that is being discussed internally. Thirdly, it could have been a Blizzard licensing agreement, that would forbid cloud computing usage for its game.
Blizzard Activision has not publicly revealed their reasoning behind the withdrawal, however, GeForce Now is facing more criticism than ever. It was previously facing criticism on Shadow being expensive, and now this. Lastly, Nvidia GeForce Now wrote that they are working on more than 1500 titles, that will be bought to the service.
