Netflix to release 40 games this year

Netflix is slated to release 40 games this year, as the streaming company seeks to strengthen its gaming portfolio.

This year the streaming giant is going to continue building its 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 the streamer is working with the world’s leading studios to bring you these games.

“It’s been a little more than a year since we launched games on Netflix to bring even more entertainment to our members as part of their Netflix subscription. In this short time, we’ve released 55 games, with about 40 more slated for later this year and 70 in development with our partners. That’s in addition to the 16 games currently being developed by our in-house game studios,” said Leanne Loombe, Vice President, External Games.

She announced that the goal is to develop a broad portfolio of games — in different genres and formats.

“The opportunity to expand the worlds of Netflix films and series through games is incredibly exciting to us. One of our most-played games to date, Too Hot to Handle: Love is a Game, is based on our wildly popular unscripted dating show, Too Hot to Handle. We saw our community flock to the title when it was released alongside Season 4 of the series and stay engaged through the weekly drops of in-game episodes. We are excited to partner with Nanobit again to release a new Too Hot to Handle game later this year,” Leanne Loombe added.

In January, Netflix debuted Valiant Hearts: Coming Home, the first of three exclusive games from Ubisoft coming to the streamer. Next up from Ubisoft on April 18 is Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace, a rogue-lite game set in the wacky universe some may remember from The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. Featuring an improved formula, deepened narrative and upgraded frantic action gameplay, it’s easy to jump into and endlessly replayable.

Next year, ustwo’s brilliant and beautiful Monument Valley franchise is coming to Netflix, starting with Monument Valley 1 and Monument Valley 2, with more to come. These award-winning, emotional tales are visually stunning and mind-bending, and we can’t wait for our members to experience them on Netflix.

“And while it’s still very early in development, 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,” she added.
