Netflix is in a precarious situation since for the first time he lost subscribers, which in turn caused a fall in the stock market. It remains to be seen how the future of the company will be, but the games are undoubtedly a part of it. Netflix has not only been at the forefront of the resurgence of cross media related to the intellectual property of video games, but has also gotten into the business publication business. Meanwhile, it has begun to launch games that are available exclusively for their subscribers. Until now, these have been mobile games, and of less scope and ambition, but, of course, this could change over time. Meanwhile, before the end of the year, subscribers have about 50 mobile games that will be launched through the subscription service for subscribers without additional costs.
What are these games and how good they will be, we don’t know. All we know is that Netflix subscribers will get almost 50 “free” mobile games before the end of the year. In March, one of the best games of this new initiative was launched, a remastering of a highly qualified playstation game.
Until now, these games have been free of microtransactions and ads in the game. In other words, although they are free for subscribers, they are not like other free games on mobile platforms.
Interestingly, in September last year, Netflix acquired the Night School study, the best known team for oxen_. The study, which is the first to join the Netflix family, is known for its high quality console and PC games. It remains to be seen how an acquisition like this, and the future, will cross with this free mobile games initiative, but you have to imagine that the plan is to join the two. If Netflix can make and launch large -budget TV movies and TV programs, there is no reason why I can’t do this with console games. However, obviously, there are more variables involved because not all who have a subscription to Netflix will have a PS5 or Xbox Series X.
