Activision Blizzard Games Have Been Pulled from GeForce Now

That too at Activision's request!
Nvidia's GeForce Now shocked us last week as the game streaming service is giving Google Stadia a serious run for its money, and some of the features are just fantastic. However, if you like the platform for Activision and Blizzard games you're out of luck. They have been removed without any prior warning!
According to an Nvidia spokesperson, they have been removed at Activision's request. The collection had games like Moder Warfare Overwatch, Diablo: 3, and more. 
"As we take GeForce NOW to the next step in its evolution, we’ve worked with publishers to onboard a robust catalog of your PC games," the spokesperson said. "This means continually adding new games, and on occasion, having to remove games – similar to other digital service providers. "
"Per their request, please be advised Activision Blizzard games will be removed from the service. While unfortunate, we hope to work together with Activision Blizzard to re-enable these games and more in the future. In addition to the hundreds of games currently supported, we have over 1,500 games that developers have asked to be on-boarded to the service. Look for weekly updates as to new games we are adding."
It is certainly not uncommon for games to be added and removed in subscription-based services, however, someone's entire catalog being pulled out is surely new. Honestly, Nvidia's announcement sounded like an excuse and there's obviously more to the story. Our only assumption right now is that Activision and Blizzard were not happy with the terms of the deal with Nvidia.
