Activision Blizzard withdraws its GeForce Now game catalogs
The Nvidia streaming game service officially arrived a week ago, after several years in beta. Finally, anyone could enjoy this option to play without investing in a gaming PC. In addition, with a free plan perfect for casual players and another premium for 5.49 euros per month for those who invest more time, they made it a very interesting leisure option.
Of course, The biggest attraction of GeForce Now is that the games did not have to be bought again if you had already done it in stores like Steam, Epic Game Store or, for example, Battle.net among others. Well, that last one – Battle.net – is the one that just broke the news and not precisely in a positive way.
Battle.net belongs to Activision Blizzard and The company has decided to take out its entire catalog of service titles. So, from now on, you can no longer play via streaming games like Overwatch, Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and a long etcetera. And of course, if they were other titles, it mattered less, but we talked about one of the most important videogames companies. This is what Nvidia has commented.
As we take GeForce NOW to the next level in its evolution, we work with the different publishers to incorporate a catalog of robust PC games.
This means continually adding new games, and sometimes having to eliminate games – something similar to what happens with other similar digital services. similar to other digital service providers.
After requesting them, we inform you that the Activision Blizzard games will be removed from the service. Although we hope to work with them to bring back these games and more in the future.

Why Activision Blizzard withdraws its GeForce Now games
Activision Blizzard has not replied or made any statement on why they have decided to make such a decision. It is true that it arrives after a week of leaving the beta phase service, so there may be an agreement only for that period.
Until one of the companies of a more detailed version everything is based on speculation. As some media point out, Blizzard has in his EULA clauses a point where they indicate that they cannot be played through cloud services.
However, the most worrying thing about the future of the service offered by Nvidia is that other videogames companies make identical decisions and take out their catalogs. Although, as established, the service does not seem a bad option, because the sale is still carried out on the same platform where you could buy the digital version to play locally. The difference is that Nvidia then rents its servers so that it can be played via streaming. The intention may be that, to force more beneficial agreements in exchange for continuing to attract new users to the service.
