According to the latest reports, Netflix is working for forming a fully-fledged gaming division.
After the immense and nonstop success in the streaming market, especially during the pandemic. It seems now, Netflix is looking to get into the gaming industry. As reports from The Information say that the streaming giant, Netflix is busy meeting with top game industry executives, regarding forming a gaming division.
Furthermore, the meetings were about top game industry leaders joining them. Furthermore, the plan is to release a collection of games accessible through subscriptions. Like Xbox Game Pass. Or if we use a closer comparison to Netflix, Apple Arcade. It is also reported that they are still deciding whether to keep the games ad-free. An ad-included plan with a cheaper subscription or free option sounds wonderful. Only time can tell.
This is not the first time a company working on different markets is trying its hands-on gaming. Hence, it is also not too surprising to see Netflix trying its hands in forming a gaming division. Although almost all of them face difficulties. Such as Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna. Google is in a better state than Amazon in this sector as of now.
Amazon Game Studios have already canceled one game and paused on another. How the rest of the games turn out is only a matter of time.
Netflix has a chance to learn from its competitors and bring in something new. Netflix has already worked in the gaming industry before. They licensed a Stranger Things game. Moreover, released interactive shows or movies, like Minecraft Story Mode and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
Nothing is confirmed yet but the recent trends suggest that Netflix will eventually be forming a gaming division. Let’s see how these new rivals stand against giants like Game Pass, PS Now, etc.
