This week, reports from Reuters and Axios have emerged about Netflix’s possible new gaming venture.
Although companies such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Nvidia have also entered a similar space, Netflix could pose some serious competition should its gaming service take off.
According to the reports, Netflix’s service could be a smaller version of the Apple Arcade, offering a selection of curated games for a fee.
Despite Netflix being a streaming service, chances are it will be exploring downloadable games first, before deciding to expand into streaming games, similar to the likes of Stadia. It has also been said that Netflix’s games will not have advertisements, thankfully.
While Netflix has yet to say if it will be producing its own games, most experts suggest that the content will come from third parties first.
The service is touted to be launching next year, and with its app being available on almost every device of the tech savvy, it is still unclear if the gaming service will be available on smartphones, desktops, or just smart televisions.
Could Netflix gaming shake up the market? We’ll have to wait and see.
