Ubisoft “fully supports” Nvidia Geforce Now Service

Several publishers have removed their games from Nvidia’s Geforce Now service, including Bethesda, Activision Blizzard and 2K Games, but Ubisoft has taken a different stance on “PC on the cloud” streaming services. Ubisoft supports it.

Ubisoft has confirmed that Geforce Now will get “complete access” to their PC games on all supported stores, which includes, Uplay, Steam and the Epic Games Store. Below is a comment which Ubisoft’s Chris Early sent to 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.

As it stands, Geforce Now is the most gamer-friendly streaming service on the market, offering PC gamers access to the titles that they already own while requiring little to no developer effort to bring a new game to the platform. 

The only problem with Geforce Now is that it is disruptive. It is a spanner in the work for developers who have their own streaming service plans and can support practically all PC games without any additional development effort. Geforce Now also gives no money to developers, though the service requires games to be purchased using services like Steam, Uplay and the Epic Games Store. Developers will get paid for their games, but they won’t get an ongoing licensing fee from Nvidia.
