Nvidia says a 'misunderstanding' led to Activision's departure from GeForce Now

Nvidia’s game streaming service GeForce Now got off to a strong start, but ran into an unexpected headache earlier this week when Activision Blizzard removed its games from the platform. That meant big hitters including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Overwatch, and Diablo 3 were suddenly no longer available, and for no stated reason. Nvidia said only that “per their request, please be advised Activision Blizzard games will be removed from the service.”

As it turns out, the whole thing was a “misunderstanding.” An Nvidia rep told Bloomberg that Activision wanted a commercial agreement in place before it agreed to participate in the platform, but Nvidia thought that the deal covering its participation in the GeForce Now beta test included the 90-day trial period for “founders” that began when the service launched.
