The reign of Cloud Gaming is upon us, and so far, we’ve gained and lost a few contenders on the way; RIP Stadia. However, it’s good news for cloud gaming enthusiasts in India as NVIDIA GeForce Now may be coming to India. Not quite as we anticipated, but still arriving, nonetheless.

It looks like Reliance Jio, one of the leading network operators in India, might collaborate with NVIDIA to bring GeForce Now to the subcontinent via JioGames. Here’s everything we know so far about the launch of GeForce Now in India.

Finally, a cloud gaming platform in India

The cloud gaming scene in India hasn’t garnered much attention so far, and hardcore enthusiasts have had to resort to VPNs to counter this problem. JioGames should solve this in partnership with NVIDIA. The news first came to light when a Reddit user in r/IndianGaming launched JioGames on JioFibre and saw the “powered by NVIDIA GeForce Now” logo and a GeForce Now tab containing a few AAA titles like Destiny 2, Saints Row, Watch Dogs 2, and Cyberpunk 2077.

However, IGN India confirmed with a Reliance Jio employee on a Discord server that the partnership between JioGames and NVIDIA GeForce Now is underway and will be live in the first few weeks of January 2023.
