XBOX PC games on GeForce NOW
NVIDIA GeForce NOW might soon support Microsoft Xbox PC game library.
Microsoft today confirmed at a press conference attended by The Verge, that they indent to bring Xbox PC game library to NVIDIA GeForce Now. This is a cloud game streaming service that could really use a wider library to attract more gamers.
The conference in Brussels happens just hours after Microsoft confirmed it signed a 10-year binding agreement with Nintendo that will bring Call of Duty games to their platform. The deal with Nintendo and the agreement with NVIDIA are Microsoft’s major push to sway regulators who are opposing the Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
We have signed a 10 year agreement with NVIDIA that will allow GeForce NOW players to stream Xbox PC games as well as Activision Blizzard PC titles, including COD, following the acquisition. We´re committed to bringing more games to more people – however they choose to play.

NVIDIA GeForce NOW service currently offers a free tier that gives gamers access to 1-hour long sessions where they can play any of the supported games. Together with Xbox PC library and optional Game Pass, NVIDIA cloud service would definitely gain a lot of attention.
Microsoft confirmed that all Xbox games that are playable on PC will be available on GeForce NOW. Probably the biggest news it that this deal brings back the Call of Duty franchise to the GeForce NOW service since it had been removed in 2020. If the deal is approved, this would bring COD series to more than 150 million players.
