You Might Soon Be Able to Play Video Games on Netflix
Netflix has been killing it in all ways possible lately. From working with the biggest actors and getting award-winning directors, we've been constantly fed amazing series and movies month after month. And, it seems there's nothing else to do but expand.
Where you ask? Gaming. We don't know much about it yet, but video games on Netflix might be a reality soon. In a statement to Polygon, a Netflix spokesperson spilled on the streaming service's intention to go into video games.
From the looks of it, we're not only going to get more "interactive entertainment" similar to Bandersnatch and You v. Wild but there will also be games based on the company's content. Read the full statement below.
Our members value the variety and quality of our content. It’s why we’ve continually expanded our offering—from series to documentaries, film, local language originals, and reality TV. Members also enjoy engaging more directly with stories they love—through interactive shows like Bandersnatch and You v. Wild, or games based on Stranger Things, La Casa de Papel, and To All the Boys. So we’re excited to do more with interactive entertainment.
Interesting stuff. Now we know you probably have trust issues about premature announcements like these, but several sources say Netflix is in talks with a number of "veteran game industry executives." That's something at least.
Before you know it, we'll be playing video games on the platform.
