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.

Well Guillemot was the first to say that consoles have no future and then next gen (after PS5) will be nothing but streaming. (dont jump down my throat. Those were his words not mine)

I can understand Ubisofts 100% backing of this service.Quote

I believe they also supported a test streaming service with the Nintendo Switch? And were the first to demo a game on Stadia? Seems like they're pretty confident in where they think the market (at least for their main demographics) is going.Quote

Personally the day gaming go's full streaming will be the day I don't partake, nothing wrong with streaming as an optional service but I don't want it to take over and replace personally.Quote

I don't think anyone is expecting or wanting anything to fully take over anything, just like PC and consoles have existing in harmony, offering similar experiences in different packages(Both financial and setup wise), I'm sure streaming can exist alongside them both offering its alternative benefits too.Quote
