Netflix Gaming: Netflix Announced 5 New Games after After Acquiring US-based Game Dev Company. Netflix announced on Tuesday that it has purchased video game developer Night School Studio and released five mobile gaming games in key European territories, as part of an effort to diversify revenue sources amid increasing competition in the streaming business. The company’s initial gaming studio acquisition, Night School Studio, is most known for its first game, Oxenfree, a supernatural teen drama with an ominous soundtrack.
Night School Studio is a video game studio based in the United States that was created in 2014. The company is best renowned for its first game, “Oxenfree,” a spooky thriller. Games from the studio are already available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and desktops.
“Netflix provides an extraordinary canvas for film, television, and now video game creators to create and distribute fantastic entertainment to millions of people. Our forays into narrative gameplay and Netflix’s history of championing various storytellers were a natural fit.
Of course, being the first games studio to join Netflix is an incredible honor! Not only do we get to keep doing what we love, but we also have a front-row seat on the world’s largest entertainment platform. Netflix’s team has taken great care to safeguard our studio’s culture and creative vision. We’ll continue to work on OXENFREE II. We’ll keep cooking up new game worlds.”
In late August, Netflix launched two games based on its famous Stranger Things series in Poland, kicking off its mobile gaming ambitions. A month later, the business is expanding its mobile gaming endeavor with three new games: Shooting Hoops, Teeter Up, and Card Blast, which are now available in three countries.
None of the new games were created by Netflix, and none of them are linked to any of its shows or films. Frosty Pop for Shooting Hoops and Teeter Up, and Rogue Games for Card Blast, have instead licensed the games from their creators. These are lighthearted games that appeal to a wide spectrum of people.
