Sad news for those in North America and Europe.
Activision Blizzard has pulled its library of games from NVIDIA’s GeForce Now streaming service, it was today announced.
“While unfortunate, we hope to work together with Activision Blizzard to reenable these games and more in the future,” an NVIDIA staff member wrote, confirming that the publisher has asked for its games to be removed.
With this news comes the rumour that Activision Blizzard may have removed its titles — the likes of Diablo III, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Overwatch — as it prepares to make them available on Google Stadia instead. Last month, Activision Blizzard and Google advised that they’d entered into a partnership that means Activision Blizzard would make use of Google’s Cloud and YouTube services for its Esports ventures.
GeForce Now is now available as a monthly subscription service in North America and Europe, offering the ability to stream games to a device of your choice for $5 a month.
