Nvidia has confirmed that multiple new games have been added to Geforce Now, including numerous Assassin's Creed and Far Cry titles from Ubisoft. These include Assassin's Creed Rogue, Revelations, 1 and 2, as well as Far Cry, Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3. 

While this is great news for Geforce Now users, it comes with a major downside. On April 24th, Nvidia's losing the backing of three major publishers, Xbox Games Studios (Microsoft), Codemasters and Warner Brothers Entertainment. On this date Klei Studios, the creators if DOn't Starve and Oxygen Not Included, will also leave the service. 

Add this to the existing list of publishers which have decided to distance itself from Geforce Now, such as Activision Blizzard, 2K Games and Bethesda Softworks, as we can see that Geforce Now is far from the "PC in the cloud" experience that the service should be. 

At the end of this week, Geforce Now users will lose access to the Batman Arkham Series, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the Forza series, the Gears franchise and seemingly countless racing titles from Codemasters. This severely limits Nvidia's games library and seemingly confirms that Minecraft with RTX isn't coming to Geforce Now.  

   As we prepare for commercial service in June, we’ll be adding and removing games through the end of May.

Behind the scenes, we’re working with digital game stores so publishers can tag their games for streaming on GeForce NOW, right when they publish a game. This will help us bring more games to the library, quicker, as well as provide a more stable catalog.

We’re transitioning as many games to GeForce NOW as possible over this time. For those leaving, we’ll give gamers as much notice as possible. Games from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, XBOX Game Studios, Codemasters and Klei Entertainment will be removed from the service on Friday, April 24. We hope they’ll return in the future.

In the meantime, look for Game Ready on GeForce NOW releases every Thursday, including larger batches throughout April and May.

While publishers like Epic Games and Ubisoft have backed Nvidia's Geforce Now Streaming service, it looks like Nvidia has a long way to go before its service can reach its full potential. Hopefully, some of these publishers will move to support Geforce Now in the future, as we don't want to see too much fragmentation in the future when it comes to PC game streaming.

Maybe they should rename it to GeForce Later, or GeForce Never. Quote
