Activision Blizzard games stripped from GeForce Now

By Kirsten Howard. Posted

If you signed up for Nvidia's shiny new Stadia competitor GeForce Now last week and you're wondering where the cloud gaming platform's collection of Activision Blizzard titles has gone, your eyes do not deceive you: they've all been removed en masse.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Overwatch and the rest of Activision Blizzard's catalogue has been totally stripped from the service at the company's request, but no reason has yet been offered for the move. We can probably safely assume it's either a money-related issue, or that Activision Blizzard is planning to announce a deal with a rival.

A quick post in the official GeForce Now forum confirmed the sudden action:

"As we take GeForce NOW to the next step in its evolution, we’ve worked with publishers to onboard a robust catalog of your PC games. This means continually adding new games, and on occasion, having to remove games – similar to other digital service providers.

"Per their request, please be advised Activision Blizzard games will be removed from the service. While unfortunate, we hope to work together with Activision Blizzard to re-enable these games and more in the future. In addition to the hundreds of games currently supported, we have over 1,500 games that developers have asked to be on-boarded to the service. Look for weekly updates as to new games we are adding."
