Watch out Game Pass, you may have some competition as the media goliath Netflix is reportedly looking into expanding into the video game world.
The new report comes from The Information, which cites sources "familiar with the situation". According to the publication, over the past few weeks, Netflix has been looking to fill a video game executive role, and has reached out to numerous people within the industry. The games Netflix produces are said to be "ad-free" and will operate similarly "to Apple’s online subscription offering, Apple Arcade."
Over the years, the walls between Netflix and the video game world have slowly crumbled. The service has worked on bringing gaming IPs to life, with shows such as Castlevania and Dragon's Dogma. There's also been a couple of games made from their exclusive catalogue of shows, including a pretty fun retro inspired game based on Stranger Things.
Xbox Game Pass is often considered 'the Netflix of gaming', but we're pretty sure they'll be okay. If Netflix does decide to fully pursue this venture, it could result in some interesting competition, which at the end of the day, only works out better for us. Show us what you've got, Netflix!
