2K may have recently joined Activision and Bethesda in removing its portfolio from GeForce Now, Nvidia’s streaming service, but it seems the service’s biggest game – Fortnite – isn’t going anywhere just yet.
“Epic is wholeheartedly supporting NVIDIA’s GeForce Now service with Fortnite and with Epic Games Store titles that choose to participate (including exclusives), and we’ll be improving the integration over time,” Epic Games’ boss, Tim Sweeney, announced on Twitter. “It’s the most developer-friendly and publisher-friendly of the major streaming services, with zero tax on game revenue. Game companies who want to move the game industry towards a healthier state for everyone should be supporting this kind of service!
“Cloud streaming services will also be key players in ending the iOS and Google Play payment monopolies and their 30 per cent taxes,” Sweeney added. “Apple has decreed that these services aren’t allowed to exist on iOS, and therefore aren’t allowed to compete, which is megalomaniacal and won’t stand.
