Microsoft to bring Xbox games to Nvidia's GeForce Now

Microsoft announced on Tuesday that it will bring its Xbox PC games to Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming service effective immediately.

The company's President Brad Smith said the tech giant also intends to make Activision Blizzard games, including Call of Duty, available on the platform if its proposed $69 billion acquisition of the games maker is approved by regulators. Microsoft added it hopes the move to bring Xbox games to GeFeorce Now could improve the chances of the deal being greenlit. "It's really a question of whether they want to block this deal or approve it with a set of guardrails ... remedies, and solutions," Smith noted.

Antitrust regulators in the European Union, United Kingdom and the United States have cited concerns about Microsoft's acquisition of Activision significantly reducing the competition in the cloud gaming market.
