Nvidia sheds light on why Activision Blizzard removed their games from Geforce Now

Earlier this week, Nvidia confirmed that Activision Blizzard asked for its games to be removed from the company's newly launched Geforce Now service, removing games from Nvidia's gaming library less than a week after the service became publically available. 

Since then, Nvidia has released more information regarding Activision Blizzard's decision, calling the move a "misunderstanding". Based on a statement that Nvidia made to Bloomberg, it looks like Activision desired a commercial agreement with Nvidia before they launched Geforce Now. On the Nvidia side, It appears that they thought that their preliminary agreement, which brought Activision Blizzard's games to Geforce Now's beta, would also extend to Geforce Now's 90-day trial period. 

Nvidia released the following statement to Bloomberg, revealing their intent to bring Activision Blizzard's games back to their Geforce Now service. 

  Activision Blizzard has been a fantastic partner during the GeForce Now beta, which we took to include the free trial period for our founders membership.

   Recognizing the misunderstanding, we removed their games from our service, with hope we can work with them to re-enable these, and more, in the future.
Right now, Geforce Now costs Founders £4.99/$4.99/€5.49 per month for the next 12 months, with Nvidia offering users a 90-day free trial during the service's introduction. 

With its Geforce Now service, Nvidia plans to outcompete Google's Stadia platform with a larger gaming library while launching before Microsoft's Project xCloud, the Xbox streaming service. With the power of PC gaming hardware and a wide array of supported titles, Nvidia's cloud gaming offering may be the strongest to date.
