Well add 2K Games to the list of publishers who have removed their games from NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW streaming service. The streaming service is fresh out of beta and is said to have a library of over 1000 games. It has also received good customer feedback, but something must be going on as publishers keep leaving the service.
We are still unsure why publishers keep leaving the service, but it is not a good thing for the future of game streaming. One reason might be that users only need to import a single copy of their purchased game to the service and can play it on any device. This removes the need to users to repurchase the game across multiple gaming (mobile / non-mobile) platforms. Another reason is that the service could cut into sales of next-gen consoles as users won’t need the latest and greatest hardware to play their games.
Whatever the reason is things are not looking good for GeForce NOW. Publishers we have already left the service include: Capcom, Electronic Arts, Konami, Remedy, Rockstar Games, Square Enix, Activision Blizzard, and Betheseda Softworks.
