Following a host of speculation, Netflix has confirmed that they will be adding mobile games to its subscription service.
Rumours have been circulation of the past few weeks that Netflix could be adding mobile games to its streaming service, now it seems that Netflix has confirmed that the rumours are true.
The rumours began by suggesting that Netflix would be pairing with PlayStation in order to offer game streaming, however it seems unlikely that Netflix would compete with services such as Google Stadia and xCloud.
Netflix will still hope to have a foot in door when it comes to the gaming industry as the have recently confirmed that they will be offered mobile games as part of its subscription service.
Netflix has said they plan to offer these games as part of existing subscriptions and also hopes to give customers more entertainment value by expanding its streaming with smartphone games.
Chief Product Officer Greg Peters stated in a recent company call “the success of this initiative is about great games, fundamentally”.
This could be an exciting move for the company, this move could potentially open a door for a Netflix based game to be created.
Netflix will be licensing some games, although it seems it could be planning to use its own intellectual property to create future games to rival its competitors.
As Netflix began by licensing TV series and movies, it will be interesting to see the service make the leap into the gaming world.
Although there was no exact date revealed as to when we can expect this to happen, fans will have to hang on and wait to see what is in store for the future.
