2K Games Pulls Its Titles From Nvidia GeForce Now
The publisher follows Activision Blizzard and Bethesda's footsteps.
Another company has removed its games from Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming service. And this time, it was much more direct, as publisher 2K Games purposefully requested to have its titles pulled.
Nvidia community manager Cory Banks posted on the company's official forums that 2K Games has made the choice to remove its games from GeForce Now. Though a reason has not been provided, Banks said that Nvidia is working with 2K to "re-enable their games in the future."
2K's decision echoes that of other game publishers such as Activision Blizzard and Bethesda, which have also pulled its games from GeForce Now. While Bethesda's reasons remain just as hazy as 2K's, Nividia said Activision Blizzard's removal was a "misunderstanding." Hinterland Studio, the developer behind The Long Dark, also pulled the survival game from the service.
With GeForce Now officially out of beta, Nvidia general manager Phil Eisler warned subscribers in a blog post that many game companies may end up choosing to remove themselves from the equation.
"As we approach a paid service, some publishers may choose to remove games before the trial period ends," Eisler said. "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)."
Despite these removals, Nvidia recently celebrated GeForce Now surpassing one million subscribers. The company also teased that more than 1,500 games are set to launch on the cloud gaming service in the future.
