Microsoft brings Xbox games to NVIDIA GeForce NOW

More than 25 million gamers in over 100 countries are in for a treat. They can now play Xbox PC games via the NVIDIA® GeForce NOW cloud gaming service.

This follows a 10-year agreement between Microsoft and NVIDIA to enable gamers to stream Xbox PC titles from GeForce NOW to PCs, macOS, Chromebooks, smartphones, and other devices. This includes Activision Blizzard PC titles, such as Call of Duty, after Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision closes.

“This partnership will help grow NVIDIA’s catalogue of titles to include games like Call of Duty, while giving developers more ways to offer streaming games. We are excited to offer gamers more ways to play the games they love,” said Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming CEO.

“Through this partnership, more of the world’s most popular titles will now be available from the cloud with just a click, playable by millions more gamers,” said Jeff Fisher, Senior Vice President of GeForce at NVIDIA.

Microsoft and NVIDIA have begun working on integrating Xbox PC games into GeForce NOW, so that GeForce NOW members can stream PC games they buy in the Windows Store, including third-party partner titles where the publisher has granted streaming rights to NVIDIA. Xbox PC games currently available in third party stores such as Steam or Epic Games Store will also be able to be streamed through GeForce NOW.
