If the acquisition of Activision Blizzard is successful, Microsoft will sign a 10-year agreement with NVIDIA to make Xbox games available on GeForce Now.
Microsoft President Brad Smith announced the agreement with NVIDIA during a hearing in Brussels in which Microsoft defended its acquisition of Activision Blizzard. He stated, in particular, that Microsoft has done so.
Smith noted that Sony has 286 PlayStation exclusives while Microsoft has only 58 Xbox exclusives. He stressed the importance of the partnership with Sony and the absence of conflicts or concerns over these games. According to Microsoft's president, Microsoft intends to focus on cross-platform gaming from now on.
If the transfer is approved, third-party games will be included. Xbox Game Studios games purchased from Steam and the Epic Store will also be available. The companies say they are immediately working on the project, which means that the practical implications of its application will soon become apparent in the form of expanding the list of available GeForce Now games.
Microsoft had announced a ten-year deal with Nintendo to host Xbox games on the Nintendo platform, stating that Call of Duty would be subject to the agreement. The company is also continuing to strive to complete its acquisition of Activision Blizzard, which is scheduled for July 18, 2023.
