Ubisoft, Epic and Bungie among companies bringing games to GeForce Now

Nvidia has revealed a number of games firms who are bringing their releases to the company's GeForce Now streaming platform.

In a blog post, the graphics specialist says that French publisher Ubisoft, Fortnite maker Epic as well as Bungie of Destiny fame and Japanese giant Bandai Namco are among the developers and publishers launching their wares on the service. Nvidia boasts that 30 of the Top 40 most-played titles on Steam are now available on its streaming platform, with another 1,500-plus games set to come to the service.

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed and Far Cry series have come to GeForce Now alongside the wildly popular online shooter, Rainbow Six Siege. Meanwhile, Destiny 2 is also launching on the streaming service.

“Ubisoft fully supports Nvidia's GeForce Now with complete access to our PC games from the Ubisoft Store or any supported game stores,” said Ubisoft's SVP of partnerships, Chris Early.

“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 favourite games.”

Bungie's director of product management Gary Clay added: “We’re already seeing a lot of our existing players take advantage of GeForce Now to stream Destiny 2 so they can play anytime, anywhere with their friends. With Destiny 2 now free to play, we’re excited to partner with Nvidia to introduce even more players — even those who previously couldn’t hit min spec — to our growing community of Guardians.”

It's not all good news, however. Titles from Warner Bros, Xbox, Codemasters and Klei are being removed from GeForce Now on Friday, April 24th. These companies are the latest to have their games taken off the service, following 2K, Activision Blizzard, Bethesda and Hinterlands
