Bethesda initially offered a big part of their catalogue on GeForce Now including games like Skyrim, Fallout 3, New Vegas and Fallout 76, Doom, Dishonored games and more.

GeForce Now is Nvidia's brand new cloud gaming service, which only recently went live. At the moment, GeForce now looks like a better "buy" than Google's streaming service Stadia but it is a long and competitive way ahead for both services before players start switching to cloud gaming from their consoles and PCs.

Today, Bethesda have pulled all but one of their games from GeForce Now. The company initially offered a big part of their catalogue including some of their biggest titles such as Skyrim, Fallout New Vegas, Fallout 76, Dishonored series, Doom and more. 

Interestingly, Bethesda simply chose to remove the games, leaving behind only their latest shooter game - Wolfenstein: Youngblood. At the time of writing, Bethesda did not reveal the reason behind their decision. Whether this has something to do with a potential exclusivity deal with Google Stadia or not, it remains to be seen.

Nvidia are also yet to share any information as to why Bethesda's games were removed from their service. 

As for the games, it is possible that Wolfenstein: Youngblood stayed on GeForce Now since it's one of the games with Nvidia's real-time ray tracing support.

Nvidia probably won't be too bothered with the removal of these games since they have just announced that CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on GeForce Now on launch. 

You can find more about GeForce Now including the details about membership and list of available games on the official website.
