Nvidia's GeForce Now is now opt-in for games firms

Graphics hardware specialist Nvidia has said that games will only be playable on its GeForce Now streaming service if the companies behind them have agreed.

That's going by a new blog post, in which the firm says that games will be removed from the service automatically if developers and publishers don't opt-in. To date, there are over 2,000 titles on the platform.

GeForce Now allows consumers to play games they have bought on other PC platforms, such as Steam. This has led to companies like Activision Blizzard, Bethesda and 2K Games removing their titles from the streaming service. This is likely so that Nvidia can pay some money out for titles played on the platform.

Meanwhile, the likes of Ubisoft, Epic and Bungie are among the publishers bringing their games to GeForce Now.

The platform launched in February 2020 following just over three years in beta.
