Key notes

  • Microsoft and Nvidia announced a 10-year extensive partnership deal.
  • The agreement will bring Xbox titles, including the Call of Duty franchise, to Nvidia's cloud gaming service 
  • Additionally, the tech giant also came to terms with Nintendo.

Microsoft and Nvidia have just teamed up to bring Xbox titles to the latter’s cloud gaming service, Nvidia GeForce NOW and announced a lucrative 10-year deal, during a press conference in Brussels. 

Once the agreement comes into place, gamers can stream Xbox PC titles from GeForce NOW to PCs, macOS, Chromebooks, smartphones, and other devices. The news itself arrives amidst Microsoft’s latest attempt to acquire Activision Blizzard, which has turned into a tug-of-war saga with EU antitrust regulators.

The Head of Xbox Phil Spencer is optimistic that the partnership is beneficial for both parties and gives developers more ways to make money out of their games.

Xbox remains committed to giving people more choice and finding ways to expand how people play. 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.

What could the Xbox – Nvidia integration mean for gamers?

Nvidia launched its GeForce NOW cloud gaming service in 2020 and has supported over 1.500 titles for its 25 million members in over 100 countries. With this addition, Xbox games in third-party stores like Steam or Epic will be able to be streamed through GeForce NOW. 

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. 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

Previously, Microsoft also announced another 10-year binding deal with Nintendo, hoping to bring its beloved Xbox games to the often-overlooked console in the near future. 

In the latest update of the Microsoft-Activision saga, the Redmond-based company’s execs arrived at a hearing to persuade EU antitrust regulators to greenlight the deal.
