Netflix announces its own personal gaming studio

Netflix Games

Popular streaming service, Netflix, has changed over the years. Raising subscription prices, losing movies, live-action pursuits: you name it, and Netflix has experienced it.

Last year, Netflix announced that the streaming giant would be moving into the gaming scene. It was announced back in November 2021 as a mobile only starting point.

Fans with mobile devices, *cough cough* Blizzard *cough cough* could access five games. Since then, the team has been relatively quiet.

That is until this week. Netflix is ready to go big into the gaming market.

Netflix Games enters the gaming scene

Netflix’s VP of Game Studios, Amir Rahimi, announces the giant’s full entrance into the gaming market. Spearheaded by Zynga’s, Marko Lastikka, Rahimi describes this as:

“Another step in our vision to build a world-class games studio that will bring a variety of delightful and deeply engaging original games — with no ads and no in-app purchases — to our hundreds of millions of members around the world.”

A couple of interesting points to note from the announcement. The studio will be located in Helsinki, Finland as Rahimi says it’s home to some of the best talent in the world.

Aside from studio location, if you’re like me and had no idea, Netflix already owns a couple of studios. Next Games and Boss Fight Entertainment joined earlier this year and Night School Studio, whom created hit indie title OXENFREE, is also a part of the group.

As per usual in this industry, not much else was shared as it’s still very early in the streaming service’s plans. All of the above studios will be putting their brains together to make magic.

However, it’s going to be interesting to see what they put out. Not everything has to be AAA so if they put together some smaller projects, it could be a hit.

Plot twist. Netflix Games announces a Stranger Things battle royale or an asymmetrical experience….

Never mind. Ignore that.

As long as they don’t raise my subscription prices, I’ll be okay. Also, throw Blade Runner 2049 back on the service please.
