Cyberpunk 2077 will hit GeForce Now the day it's released

Although Nvidia has since said the decision was due to a "misunderstanding", potential members are rightly anxious that other publishers could do the same at any moment, taking a massive advantage away from Geforce Now. "GeForce NOW Founders members can explore the streets of Night City with RTX ON, fully optimized and instantly available, even on your Mac laptop".

And of course that means subscribers to the game streaming service will be able to benefit from RTX graphics, with Cyberpunk 2077 promising some seriously gorgeous ray-traced visuals - and they won't need a super-expensive gaming PC to enjoy all this.

Cyberpunk 2077, barring further delays, is coming to PC and consoles in September. But that was announced before the game was delayed until September - previously Cyberpunk 2077 was due to launch in April - so this situation may have changed.

To be fair to Nvidia, it's not a perfectly equivalent situation.

Geforce Now's biggest selling point is that it uses your existing purchases on Steam and other platforms, unlike Stadia where you're required to buy games individually.

Here's a cool thing: If you're getting Cyberpunk 2077 on Steam, you'll also be able to play the game on launch day with Nvidia's GeForce Now. I've reached out to CD Projekt and Google to ask about the Stadia launch date, and will update if I receive a reply.
