GeForce NOW has had games made by Codemasters, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Klei Entertainment and XBOX Game Studios pulled from its platform. However, the news on NVIDIA's take on cloud gaming is not all bad: Ubisoft has added a total of 36 new games to its portfolio. A representative for this publisher has also endorsed it as "a leading-edge service".

GeForce NOW users may be dismayed to learn that the game-streaming platform will reportedly lose various titles from a total of 4 publishers, Warner Bros. and XBOX Game Studios included. This is due to the service's model, which, while allowing access to any game the player owns over a cloud, does so at the discretion of the maker in question without the bother involved in paying them a fee to do so.

This, then, may be why Codemasters, Klei Entertainment and 2 others have pulled their products from the GeForce NOW shelves. This change is slated to take effect from today (April 24, 2020). However, users may be able to compensate with a list of new games from Ubisoft instead.

This company has let it be known that it is still solidy behind the NVIDIA-run cloud service. Its senior vice president of partnerships, Chris Early, has posted to this effect on Twitter. Therefore, gamers may be assured of access to titles such as the Assassin's Creed series and Dungeon Defenders via this form of streaming in the future.
