Rockstar Games has pulled Grand Theft Auto 5 from Nvidia Geforce Streaming platform. The Nvidia Geforce Now is set to release in the next few months but it seems Google Stadia, it’s biggest competitor, is already denting its appeal by taking some of the biggest games away. Rockstar Games has now removed GTA 5 from Nvidia GeForce lineup of games for good it seems and we already know that Google Stadia is reportedly getting the exclusive release of Red Dead Redemption 2 and this removal of GTA 5 further adds fuel to the RDR2 Stadia reports and rumors.
It is only a rational conclusion at this point that Google has signed an exclusive deal with Rockstar and Take-Two for Grand Theft Auto 5 as well. When asked why this game is removed from GeForce Now, Nvidia said that it is an “intentional” removal and that it is a decision made by the “devs.”
You can visit the official list of supported games which has some big names such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Origins, Anno 1800, Ark Survival Evolved, Bioshock, and many others, but no GTA 5 or any other Rockstar game. Only the following games remain under the “G” category.
- GRIP: Combat Racing
- Garry’s Mod
- GUILTY GEAR Xrd -REVELATOR-
- Green Hell
- Guild Wars 2
- Golf With Your Friends
- Generation Zero
- Guacamelee! 2
- Grim Dawn
There are still a plethora of games available to play on Nvidia GeForce Now. However, over at Nvidia Forums, fans aren’t happy about GTA 5’s removal.
Meanwhile, Google Stadia fans must be excited to see a major title heading exclusively to Stadia. Keep in mind that this is all speculation at this point but it is highly likely that at this point Google Stadia is getting GTA 5, thanks to Google’s deep pockets.
