Netflix has announced that it plans to add 40 more games to its gaming portfolio in 2023. The company has also said that it has 70 games in development with its partners. Apart from this, the streaming giant is also working on developing 16 more games in its in-house gaming studio.
Netflix wrote in a blog post, “Our goal is to develop a broad portfolio of games – across a variety of genres and formats – because we believe everyone can find enjoyment in games if they play one (or several!) .
To recall, Netflix had launched its game-streaming service in November 2021. The service started with games such as Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast. (Amuzo and Rogue Games), and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop) to name a few. In about a year and a half since launch, the company has added over 55 titles to its service. The list includes Kentucky Route Zero, Twelve Minutes, TiltingPoint’s Vikings: Valhalla, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge to name a few. Now, the company has announced that it plans to further expand its gaming portfolio this year.
“This year we’re going to continue to build out our portfolio – and that means new games every month. Members will discover indie darlings, award-winning hits, RPGs, narrative adventures, puzzle games and everything in between, and We’re working with the world’s leading studios to bring these games to you,” the company said.
Netflix said it is turning one of its famous shows Too Hot to Handle into a game. The streaming giant is partnering with Nanobit to release a new ‘Too Hot to Handle game’ later this year. In addition, the company will release Ubisoft’s Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace, a rogue-lite game set in the wacky universe some may remember from The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, on its platform on April 18th.
In addition, the company announced that it will release ustwo’s Monument Valley franchise, including Monument Valley 1 and Monument Valley 2, on its platform next year.
“I’m excited to share that Super Evil Megacorp (Vainglory, Catalyst Black) is working with us on an exclusive game based on an upcoming Netflix release. We can’t wait to share more later this year.
As far as the March 2023 release is concerned, while Highwater is already available on Netflix, Terra Nil will arrive on the platform on March 28.
