Microsoft and NVIDIA have agreed to a partnership for 10 years during which the two companies will work together to bring Xbox and PC games to Nvidia’s cloud gaming service, GeForce NOW.
“Xbox remains committed to giving people more choice and finding ways to expand how people play,” said Phil Spencer, Microsoft Gaming CEO.
“This partnership will help grow NVIDIA’s catalog 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.”
“Combining the incredibly rich catalog of Xbox first-party games with GeForce NOW’s high-performance streaming capabilities will propel cloud gaming into a mainstream offering that appeals to gamers at all levels of interest and experience,” said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of NVIDIA’s GeForce unit.
“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.”
Microsoft and NVIDIA will begin working right away to integrate these games into GeForce NOW. GeForce NOW’s 25 million+ users will be able to stream titles like Forza Horizon and Halo from GeForce NOW to PCs, macOS, Chromebooks, smartphones, and other devices.
They will be able to stream PC games purchased from the Windows Store, as well as select third-party partner titles with streaming rights granted to NVIDIA. Games that are offered on third-party stores like Steam and the Epic Games Store will also be available to stream using GeForce NOW.
