Microsoft and Nvidia have announced a new deal signed between the two companies. As part of the deal, Microsoft and Nvidia have agreed to a 10-year partnership, bringing Xbox PC games to Nvidia’s cloud streaming platform GeForce Now.
The deal, coming about as a result of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, will bring several games to the service, including Call of Duty. The deal also means that GeForce Now users can play games they buy on the Windows Store without having to use any workarounds. This includes third-party releases.
The deal seems to be similar to the one recently signed between Microsoft and Nintendo, where Microsoft agreed to a 10-year partnership to bring games like Call of Duty to Nintendo’s platform with “full feature and content parity”.
The announcement comes in light of a recent European Commission hearing about Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. After the hearing, Microsoft’s Brad Smith also revealed that the company and Sony aren’t yet close to signing a similar deal to keep bring Call of Duty to PlayStation.
