Cyberpunk 2077 Will Launch On Nvidia's Cloud Gaming Service
Now, do I buy the game or do I stream the game?
CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 will arrive on GeForce Now the same day as it launches on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google's competing cloud gaming service Stadia, Nvidia announced in a blog post.
GeForce Now members can play their Steam copy of Cyberpunk 2077 when it releases on September 17. Founders subscribers will get access to RTX On, a higher-fidelity resolution using ray tracing technology. Nvidia said the higher resolution will be "fully optimized and instantly available, even on your Mac laptop."
Much like Stadia and Sony's PlayStation Now, Nvidia's GeForce Now is a cloud gaming service that allows you to stream your favorite PC games directly to your Mac, PC, Nvidia Shield TV, or Android-based devices. The company officially launched GeForce Now earlier this month with two tiers.
Activision Blizzard removed its entire library of games from GeForce Now a week after the service launched. Nvidia blamed the removal on Activision Blizzard, who recently entered a multiyear deal with Google for exclusive streaming rights to major Overwatch and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare esports events on YouTube. Nvidia has since said the abrupt purging of Activision Blizzard's game catalog was a "misunderstanding."
Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed from its April 16 launch to a new September 17 release date. Despite the five extra months of development time, CDPR said the team will still have to crunch to finish the game. In collaboration with CDPR, Nvidia showed off a special edition Cyberpunk 2077 RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. Currently there's no way to purchase it, but Nvidia is giving away 77 of them on Twitter.
