Microsoft has announced that it has signed a 10-year deal with NVIDIA to bring Xbox games, including Minecraft and Activision titles like Call of Duty, to the NVIDIA GeForce NOW cloud gaming service.
This means that you can soon stream your favorite Xbox PC games from GeForce NOW to your PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, smartphones, and other devices! Plus, after Microsoft acquires Activision, you’ll even be able to stream awesome games like Call of Duty on GeForce NOW. How awesome is that?!
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.

It also means that NVIDIA won’t object to Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
Xbox PC games will soon be integrated into GeForce NOW, so you can stream games you buy in the Windows Store, including third-party partner titles with streaming rights granted to NVIDIA. Even games available on third-party stores like Steam or Epic Games Store can be streamed through GeForce NOW!
This agreement was announced today at a Microsoft press conference in Brussels, Belgium. Also, Microsoft just confirmed that they’ve got a 10-year agreement to bring the latest version of Call of Duty to the Nintendo platform after the merger with Activision. Exciting times!
