In a blog and accompanying video, developer Ighor July has documented how he was able to access the database for Nvidia’s GeForce Now streaming service.
It included a list of titles, compiled by SteamDB founder Pavel Djundik, featuring unannounced games like Final Fantasy IX Remake, Bioshock RTX Remaster, Resident Evil 4 Remake, Halo 5 PC, Grand Theft Auto Trilogy remasters, Crysis 4, Half-Life 2 Remastered, Injustice 3 and more.
UPDATE: Nvidia has confirmed that the leaked Geforce Now database list containing God of War PC, Gears 6 and more is real, but claims that the games on it are “speculative”.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: While much of the list could be made up of placeholder titles and titles that may not actually see the light of day (a popular GameCube emulator is listed, for example), VGC first reported last year that the Resident Evil 4 remake has been in development since 2018, while VGC’s sources have also corroborated reports that GTA remasters are in development.
According to Windows Central, many of the Microsoft code names mentioned on the Nvidia database are related to actual projects, some of which have already been announced as real games such as Playground’s Fable reboot.
It also claims that GeForce Now has played a prominent role in game development throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, providing remote access in work-from-home environments, which could explain why work-in-progress titles would be listed on the service.
The games listed on the GeForce Now database include:
- God of War, Returnal and Demon’s Souls for PC
- GTA3, Vice City and San Andreas remasters
- Unannounced Xbox projects (via codename)
- “Fight for Middle-Earth” and “Injustice 3: Gods Will Fall”
- Human: Fall Flat 2
- Total War 9
- Helldivers 2
- Halo 5: Guardians for PC
- Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled for PC
- “BioShock 2022”
- Final Fantasy VII Remake for PC
- Bayonetta 3 for PC
- Crysis 4
- Kingdom Hearts 4
Unlike most of the titles on the list, God of War is specifically listed for release on Steam. PS5 games Returnal and Demon’s Souls are also on the list, for example, but unlike God of War they are not attributed to a distribution platform.
The publisher released Horizon Zero Dawn for PC in August 2020 and Days Gone for PC in May 2021. It also announced last week that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and its expansion Uncharted: The Lost Legacy are getting PS5 and PC remasters, and unveiled God of War’s sequel, God of War Ragnarok.
“I think it shows there’s an appetite from gamers outside the PlayStation ecosystem to experience the amazing portfolio of games that PlayStation fans have enjoyed for years.
“But I want to emphasize that PlayStation will remain the best place to play our PlayStation Studios titles at launch. But we do value PC gamers, and we’ll continue to look at the right times to launch each game.”
