In a remarkable stride toward becoming a gaming destination, Netflix Games has made substantial progress in the past year. The streaming giant has not only launched a variety of games but also introduced its first internally developed titles.
Netflix Games is taking steps to make games available on every device, and it has revamped its games row to provide tailored recommendations. As the year comes to a close, Netflix Games is set to have a total of 86 games available, with many more in development.
Game launches and internally developed titles
Netflix Games has been on a mission to offer its subscribers an array of engaging games. In the past year, the platform successfully launched 40 games, including highly anticipated titles such as “Grand Theft Auto Trilogy – The Definitive Edition,” “Football Manager 24 Mobile,” and “Storyteller.”
These additions have added variety and excitement to the gaming catalog, ensuring that there’s something for every Netflix member to enjoy.
One significant achievement for Netflix Games is the debut of its first two internally developed games. “Oxenfree II: Lost Signals” from Night School has received critical acclaim and was recognized as one of the year’s best games.
Additionally, Boss Fight Entertainment brought “Netflix Stories: Love is Blind” to life, the first chapter in an expanding collection of interactive fiction based on popular Netflix series and movies.
Expanding accessibility: Games on TV and computers
Netflix Games is dedicated to making gaming accessible to its audience on a wide range of devices. To achieve this, the platform initiated a test phase for games on TV and computers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
This is the initial step towards their long-term vision of enabling gaming on every device. The company plans to roll out this experience to more countries and add new games to the testing phase, ensuring a global gaming reach.
Netflix prides itself on helping its members discover content they love, whether it’s series, films, or games. With a growing games selection, the platform has taken steps to refine its game recommendations.
By curating the mobile games row to match each member’s preferences, Netflix Games aims to provide more personalized and relevant game suggestions. These recommendations will continue to evolve and improve as more members engage with the gaming offerings.
