Activision Blizzard, Bethesda, 2K, and indie studio Hinterland have all pulled games from Nvidia's streaming service GeForce Now since it left beta and added a paid tier for subscribers. Epic is one company that won't be joining them, as CEO Tim Sweeney clarified on Twitter.
"Epic is wholeheartedly supporting NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW service", he wrote, "with Fortnite and with Epic Games Store titles that choose to participate (including exclusives), and we’ll be improving the integration over time."
It’s the most developer-friendly and publisher-friendly of the major streaming services, with zero tax on game revenue. Game companies who want to move the game industry towards a healthier state for everyone should be supporting this kind of service!March 7, 2020
At the moment GeForce Now users only have streaming access to a selection of games they already own on Steam, with Nvidia allowing publishers to opt-out of having their games accessible in this way. As we explained during the week, not everyone is happy with the arrangement and Capcom pulled out even before the end of the beta.
