NVIDIA users will no longer have access to the popular games, such as Doom, Fallout, Wolfenstein, and The Elder Scrolls. Why? The cloud gaming service lost Bethesda Softworks, which is no longer part of NVIDIA. This is the second time a big game developer pulls out from NVIDIA. The first time a big developer to pull out was Activision Blizzard.
Activision Blizzard owns a fair share of popular games that can be played online, similar to Bethesda Softworks. NVIDIA GeForce Now was just recently released this year’s January. With the two-game developers retracting, makes us question the way GeForce Now works. Is GeForce Now that famous, is the adaptation not suitable, or do they have an engagement problem?
The only game from Bethesda Softworks that will still remain available for streaming on NVIDIA GeForce Now is Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Bethesda Retreated Its Games From the Nvidia GeForce Now Cloud Gaming Service
The reason the company pulled out is yet to be disclosed. As mentioned above, games such as Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, and Doom are no longer available on the GeForce Now since last week.
Activision Blizzard pulled abandoned NVIDIA GeForce Now due to the licensing dispute, and then a week later, the gaming service lost Bethesda Softworks. While GeForce Now was still in its beta version, the games from both companies were available for testers for free. However, this all changed after GeForce Now went live officially. It looks like NVIDIA did not receive full operational permission once GeForce Now was available for everyone.
One of the things that bother the game developers working with NVIDIA is that they allow subscribers to buy games on other platforms, such as Steam, for example. In doing so, NVIDIA gets thumbs up from its consumers; however, this move does make developing companies very happy. Why? Because it means that developing companies don’t earn additional revenue.
