Following Netflix’s initial dalliances with video games toward the end of last year, which saw the streaming service begin offering a small selection of casual mobile games to subscribers, the streaming service is reportedly looking to significantly ramp up its offerings before the end of 2022, expanding its gaming library to almost 50 titles.
When Netflix launched its fledging video game service last November, subscribers were given accees to a total of five games as part of their usual membership. That number has steadily grown since then, with Netflix currently offering 18 games to subscribers – but a new report by the Washington Post says the company is going big in 2022, aiming to offer nearly 30 more titles by the end of the year.
There’s currently no indication of what these titles may be – other than that Netflix will reportedly be sticking with mobile games “for now” – but we do know the streaming service has been attempting to expand its video game development know-how since last year, in the form of three studio acquisitions. It now owns Texas-based mobile developer Boss Fight Entertainment, Next Games – which made Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales – and, as of last September, Oxenfree developer Night School Studio.
