GeForce Now’s new opt-in policy will likely mean a more stable library

When NVIDIA launched GeForce Now earlier this year, the streaming service ran into trouble with publishers like Activision Blizzard and Bethesda. A “misunderstanding” over what titles could stay on the platform after its beta led to some games leaving the service abruptly. Thanks to a policy change, those days are likely behind GeForce Now. 

Moving forward, NVIDIA says users will only be able to play games on GeForce Now from publishers who have opted into the service. The policy doesn’t change the fact you’ll still need to own any games you want to stream through GeForce Now, but it does mean that any existing titles will be less likely to leave the service from this point forward. In all, the company says approximately 200 publishers are currently committed to the service.
