Discovery Made In NVIDIA Geforce Now Sparks Speculation That God of War Might Be Heading To Steam


A Twitter user going by the nickname "JulyIghor" discovered some truly interesting stuff while taking apart Geforce Now

The user in question tweeted his discovery a little past midnight of today. Almost 15 hours later, the discussion is only growing, with new users chiming in to discuss the findings. Catherine: Full Body and Shin Megami Tensei V developed and published by Atlus, and God of War are console exclusive titles. And yet this PC-exclusive app stores information about them on its databases. What could all of this mean? At present, not much I’m afraid. But let us stay positive.

The tweet includes a link that will bring us to Ighor’s notes detailing how he broke open the piggy bank, and what we can find within. And full details are beyond wild. Users found unannounced remasters for Batman Arkham Knight, Chrono Cross, and Final Fantasy Tactics in the files. According to this data, almost all PlayStation exclusives will make it over to Geforce Now. This means games such as Demon’s Souls and Horizon Forbidden West on the PC.

Other users butted in to bring the hopes down a little bit. New Super Mario Bros for the Wii is in the database as well. And for the life of me, I just can’t imagine New Super Mario Bros for the PC. Ighor also took notice of this, but he suggested that this might have something to do with Dolphin Emulator, which according to this “leak” would come to Geforce Now. But either way, this makes no sense. Nintendo hates both emulators and the idea of their titles on the PC. So what in the world is going on here?

But what is this about God of War heading to Steam?

All titles featured in this data scrappage have their associated distribution service. Because Geforce Now basically streams a game to your computer, they need some version of it available. Most commonly this is either Steam or Epic Games Store. Almost all of the Playstation games, those unannounced remasters and other confusing stuff have a big black “UNKNOWN” written right next to them. But games such as Helldivers have a note saying “STEAM” right next to them, followed by their steam ID.

God of War is the only unannounced port in that database, that features the designation Steam right next to it. Followed by what is supposed to be Steam ID, but instead, it says “To be determined”. This is a whole load of speculative information. Leaks like this are often hard to interpret. Simply because no one with connections to NVIDIA is involved. This could relate to the PlayStation Now service. Not much we can do at present besides being patient. God of War releases sometime in 2022 for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. And hopefully, for the PC someday.
