Previously, Nvidia GeForce Now faced huge criticism everywhere, after Activision Blizzard decided to withdraw from their cloud service. This happened out of nowhere, and players who bought Activision Blizzard games, so they could play on GeForce Now saw themselves helpless. No official announcement or hint was given to players, and this is what caused the critiques. Despite these failures in their line of progressing, GeForce Now still got access ahead of Stadia for Cyberpunk 2077.
Today, we have much saddening news. Bethesda Softworks games have been removed from GeForce Now. Again, GeForce Now did not warn their users ahead of this withdrawal, and it again caused panic. Today, GeForce Now wrote that, “Please be advised most Bethesda Softworks titles will be removed from the GeForce Now service today. Wolfenstein Youngblood will remain for all members”.
“Earlier this month, we passed a milestone on our cloud gaming journey by removing the waitlist and opening our doors to more gamers. Over 1 million new gamers have taken to the cloud by signing up for a free plan or upgrading to the Founders membership, which includes a 90-day free trial,” Nvidia wrote. “This trial is an important transitional period where gamers, developers and publishers can try the premium experience with minimal commitment while we continue to refine our offering.”
“As we approach a paid service, some publishers may choose to remove games before the trial period ends. Ultimately, they maintain control over their content and decide whether the game you purchase includes streaming on GeForce NOW. Meanwhile, others will bring games back as they continue to realize GeForce Now’s value.”
Nvidia previously used misunderstanding as an excuse, but this time they have given a very logical reason. According to Nvidia, they thought that Activision Blizzard would stay for a longer period after Beta, however, they have now left due to concerns. Nvidia says that more than 1500 games are in queue, waiting to be added to their cloud gaming service. Bethesda has removed all their games, except Wolfenstein: Youngblood. They have yet to speak about this issue.
