IN A NUTSHELL:
- Ubisoft announced that its games will be available on GeForce NOW;
- The French company is the largest publisher that still cooperates with Nvidia on the service.
Ubisoft announced that all of its titles - including the Assassin's Creed and Far Cry series - will be available to play as part of the GeForce NOW streaming service. The declaration appeared in an email from Chris Early, the company’s SVP for Partnerships and Revenue, which was sent to the editorial staff of Kotaku.
"Ubisoft fully supports NVIDIA’s GeForce Now with complete access to our PC games from the Ubisoft Store or any supported game stores. We believe it’s a leading edge service that gives current and new PC players a high end experience with more choice in how and where they play their favorite games," reads the message.
Epic Games has recently made a similar decision. It happened after several other publishers - such as Bethesda Softworks, 2K Games or Activision - decided to pull their games from the Nvidia platform. It's uncertain what are the causes of GeForce NOW's current problems - maybe some publishers are trying to force Nvidia to share a part of the profits from the subscription, or have other plans for streaming (e.g. their own service or a contract with another big player like Google Stadia or Amazon).
We would like to remind that GeForce NOW had its official launch on February 4, this year, after several years of beta testing.
