Netflix’s Say on Expanding into Gaming
This idea of expanding into gaming was explained by them as that they view gaming as another new content category for Netflix, similar to the expansion into original films, animation, and unscripted TV.
Here’s what streaming giants have to say,
“We are excited as ever about our movies and tv series offering and we expect a long runway of increasing investment and growth across all of our existing content categories but since we are nearly a decade into our push into original programming, we think that the time is right to learn more about how our members’ values games.”
Netflix is not going to stop just here with two games. It’s just a testing phase going on and Netflix has set future plans too, to expand this testing to iOS as well. Moreover, according to reports, Netflix Mobile Gaming will work more like Apple Arcade or Google Play Pass, in order to avoid the hurdles of cloud gaming services.
