A recent leak of the GeForce Now database may have revealed a lot of details about unannounced games coming to PC and likely other platforms. Yesterday, reverse engineer Ighor July explained on his blog that he managed to get access to the full list of 18K games in Nvidia's GeForce Now catalog, and people have already found big surprises in the list that has been shared online (via Video Games Chronicle).
For those unfamiliar, GeForce Now is Nvidia’s PC-based cloud gaming service which allows gamers to stream games from the digital PC games store they already own. GeForce Now currently supports over 1,000 PC games, but Nvidia needs game publishers to agree to put their games on GeForce Now, and not all games are available in all regions.
The leaked database includes existing PC games that have yet to make their way to Nvidia’s GeForce Now service, as well as games that have yet to be announced: The biggest surprises include Titanfall 3, BioShock 2022, Crysis 4, Half-Life 2 Remastered, a Final Fantasy IX remake, a Resident Evil 4 remake, as well as the PlayStation exclusives God of War, Demon Souls, and Returnal. Gears 6 and a PC version of Halo 5: Guardians have also been spotted, despite Halo developer 343 Industries’ previous claim that a PC version of the latest Halo game wasn’t in development.
Additionally, the database mentions codenames for upcoming Xbox Game Studios titles such as Contraband (Project Typhoon) and Fable (Project Holland), as confirmed by Windows Central’s Jez Corden. However, there's still a lot of unanswered questions about the 18K+ items in that GeForce Now database, which also includes several popular apps including Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Office, and the popular Dolphin emulator.
According to the reverse engineer, GeForce Now developers could just use these apps for internal testing purposes, though the presence of many unannounced games in the database remains a mystery. Some games like the PlayStation exclusive God of War are listed as coming to Steam, and that would make sense following Sony's acquisition of Nixxes Software, a company specialized in PC ports.
