OnLive hasn’t even launched yet – and already big publishers are saying their upcoming major titles, first shown at E3 this week, will be available on the streaming game service.
Today Square-Enix, Sega, Capcom and Konami Digital Entertainment have joined a chorus of publishers that includes Electronic Arts, Take Two Interactive Software, THQ, Ubisoft and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment as supporting the service.
In a joint statement, they and OnLive had named key upcoming games for the service including these recently released games: Aliens vs. Predator (Sega), Alpha Protocol (Sega), MLB 2K10 (2K Sports), and Darksiders (THQ)
Most importantly, these ones due later this year are also heading to the service:
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (Ubisoft), Deus Ex 3 (Square-Enix), DRIVER San Francisco (Ubisoft), F.E.A.R. 3 (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment), Homefront (THQ), Kain & Lynch 2: Dog Days (Square-Enix), LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment), Red Faction: Armageddon (THQ) and Shaun White Skateboarding (Ubisoft)
OnLive reckons that naming these key titles as part of the service will boost audience figures.
The incredible support we’ve received from our publishing partners has been instrumental in helping us get OnLive into people’s homes,” said Mike McGarvey, COO of OnLive.
