Shortly after the official launch of the game streaming service GeForce Now there was a first blow to the neck for NVIDIA: All titles from publisher Activision Blizzard initially said goodbye to the service. Further details on the background have now been made public.

Via the game streaming service GeForce Now you can stream PC titles purch ased in stores such as Steam or Uplay via the network to other devices and do not necessarily have to have a powerful computer. This applies at least to all games that support the new NVIDIA offer.
The numerous Activision Blizzard titles, such as the Call of Duty series or Overwatch, were actually part of the game at first, but the publisher made them disappear again a short time later from GeForce Now. NVIDIA met this abrupt request – and now details about the background have been released.
According to a statement by NVIDIA in the renowned business magazine Bloomberg In the end a "misunderstanding" should have been responsible for it. Activision Blizzard was already a "fantastic partner" during the beta of GeForce Now and already offered its games as part of this trial version largely via the game streaming service. As a result, NVIDIA simply assumed that Activision Blizzard's agreement would continue beyond the beta without having to speak to the publisher again.
Activision Blizzard apparently saw it a little differently and therefore expressed the wish not to make their games available at GeForce Now. NVIDIA hope, however, that the matter can be removed from the world. "We hope that we can work with them to make these games and more available again in the future," says the hardware manufacturer's warehouse.
