Netflix News

Netflix has recently grown its mobile game collection, offering a total of 74 games on iOS and Android as of September 2023. Although gaming has had a minor role in Netflix’s history, the platform has made significant strides in the gaming industry in recent years. In November 2021, Netflix Games was launched within the Netflix app, allowing members to access a wide range of games as part of their subscription.

The majority of Netflix’s games have been acquired from other gaming studios. Notable acquisitions include Night School Studio, Next Games, and Boss Fight Entertainment. Netflix’s gaming model is similar to Apple Arcade, where members have unlimited access to games without ads or microtransactions.

As of January 2022, Netflix’s mobile games had approximately 8.1 million downloads worldwide on both Android and iOS platforms. By August 2022, this number had increased to 23.3 million, with around 1% of Netflix’s subscriber base trying out the gaming initiative. In October 2022, it was reported that there had been 34.1 million downloads, with 16% of these coming from the United States.

Some of the notable games available on Netflix’s mobile platform include Vikings: Valhalla, a strategy game based on the Netflix original series, and Samurai Shodown, a classic fighting game from SNK. WrestleQuest, LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed, Cut the Rope Daily, The Queen’s Gambit Chess, Too Hot to Handle 2: The Game, Sonic Prime Dash, Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, and Bloons TD 6 are among the other titles available.

With its expanding game library, Netflix aims to provide its subscribers with a diverse and engaging gaming experience. By incorporating games into its platform, Netflix continues to innovate and expand its offerings beyond traditional streaming content.
