Microsoft and Nvidia have announced a deal in which the former will bring all Xbox games to the latter’s cloud service known as GeForce Now.
This is set as a 10 year agreement and will include titles from Activision Blizzard once that acquisition goes through, as they are confident it will happen despite push back.
In fact, this partnership has also officially gotten Nvidia on Microsoft’s side, stating “The partnership delivers increased choice to gamers and resolves NVIDIA’s concerns with Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. NVIDIA therefore is offering its full support for regulatory approval of the acquisition”.
This partnership will allow those who own Xbox titles, whether through the console or on PC with storefronts such as Steam and Epic Games Store, to be able to stream the games through Nvidia’s service. GeForce Now is available via PC, supported web browsers, mobile, streaming devices, and even cars.
“Xbox remains committed to giving people more choice and finding ways to expand how people play,” Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer said. “This partnership will help grow NVIDIA’s catalog of titles to include games like Call of Duty, while giving developers more ways to offer streaming games. We are excited to offer gamers more ways to play the games they love.”
This announcement also comes with the confirmation that the previously announced Nintendo deal for launching Call of Duty titles on Nintendo platforms has also been finalized.
