NVIDIA is dropping even more titles from GeForce Now’s shrinking selection of games. According to an information embedded in a post on the company’s forum, a staff member revealed that NVIDIA will start removing 2K games from the streaming service today.
As you may know 2K’s most popular franchises include Borderlands, Civilization, BioShock and XCOM. The staff members that leak the info didn’t elaborate on the situation, only telling forum posters that the games’ removal was “per publisher request” and that the company is working with 2K to “re-enable its games in the future.”
However, GeForce Now’s library suffered one tremendous blow after another almost as soon as the service came out of beta.
Activision Blizzard pulled its games down just a few days after it went public, because it was apparently hunting a commercial agreement with NVIDIA. Not quite long after that, Skyrim developer Bethesda followed suit.
Although NVIDIA didn’t release an official statement this time around, but when Bethesda exited, GeForce Now general manager Phil Eisler made the following statement.
“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 (stay tuned for more on that).
“As the transition period comes to completion, game removals should be few and far between, with new games added to GeForce NOW each week.”
