GeForce NOW Loses 91 games - Another blow for the platform

Updated: Jun 11, 2020

Last week Geforce Now announced that it was moving to an opt-in based model and that publishers had till May 31 to opt in our out, to be honest, I thought this was a relatively short time frame, but although the article only came out last week, we can assume they had the month of May to make up their mind.

At Cloud Gaming Xtreme, we thought that was a going to show a true insight into the future of GeForce Now. If loads of publishers opted into the platform then we could see a bright future, but if suddenly a load of publishers decided not to opt in, then that would be a major blow for the platform and could add yet another black mark on GFN's declining reputation, its all well and good to be partnered with Steam, but if the publishers don't opt in, that partnership doesn't matter.

Unfortunately, one of the titles we featured very recently as joining the platform, The Wonderful 101, was one that did not opt-in.

Another Huge surprise was PUBG, they have been a supporter of GFN since the start but also did not opt-in.

We can only hope that they missed the opt-in window and choose to opt-in at a later date, but for now they have been removed from the platform already.

On a positive note, the Geforce Now platform did add 6 more titles from some new games that did opt in:

  • Guild Wars 2 (NCSoft Corp)

  • Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms (Codename Entertainment)
