A few major game publishers don't appear to be pleased after Nvidia released its GeForce Now game streaming service out of beta earlier this month. Bethesda Softworks has just pulled most of its games from the service.
Nvidia officially announced Bethesda Softworks' latest move in its forum and confirmed that only Wolfenstein: Youngblood will remain available to all GeForce Now members for the meantime (via Polygon). Furthermore, "Founders" members can continue playing the game with RTX On. Games that will be pulled from GeForce Now include Fallout 3, Fallout 76, New Vegas, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, Doom (2016), Dishonored, Dishonored 2, The Evil Within 2, and the rest of the Wolfenstein series.
Neither Nvidia nor Bethesda Softworks provided an explanation for the pullout, which comes a few days after a similar move by Activision Blizzard. Games like Overwatch and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare were removed from the service upon the request of the publisher. The company later revealed that the falling-out with Nvidia was due to a misunderstanding over whether to keep its titles on GeForce Now after the service exits beta.
GeForce Now is different from other game streaming services in that it lets you stream titles that you already own on platforms like Steam for $5 per month.
