Now 2K has removed its games from Nvidia GeForce Now

2K Games is the latest publisher to remove its titles from Nvidia's GeForce Now service.

In a post on the Nvidia forums, community manager Cory Banks said that the NBA and Borderlands firm has asked for its games to be taken off the streaming platform. Games including Borderlands, Bioshock Infinite, XCOM 2, Civilization V and Mafia III are being pulled from the service.

"Per publisher request, please be advised 2K Games titles will be removed from GeForce Now today," Banks said.

"We are working with 2K Games to re-enable their games in the future."

2K is following in the footsteps of several other publishers in taking their titles from the GeForce Now service. Activision Blizzard was the first, with Nvidia later saying that this was due to a "misunderstanding" and that the Call of Duty firm wanted a commercial agreement to be on GeForce Now.

Bethesda followed suit – with the exception of Wolfenstein Youngblood – while The Long Dark creator Hinterlands has also pulled that game from the platform.

Meanwhile, Epic boss Tim Sweeney has come out in support of Nvidia GeForce Now.

GeForce Now was finally released in February 2020, following three years in beta testing. It comes out in a competitive landscape, with Google's Stadia streaming service having launched in November 2019 while Microsoft's Project xCloud is currently in a growing test phase
