Streaming service Netflix has reported on the gaming results of this year and shared plans for the next one. He has no ambitions for the segment.

The main thing is that the company itself highlights:

  • In 2023, Netflix subscribers have access to 40 new games (including Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: The Definitive Edition, Football Manager 24 Mobile and Storyteller);
  • the first games developed by Netflix's internal teams were released (Oxenfree II: Lost Signals from Night School and Netflix Stories: Love is Blind from Boss Fight Entertainment);
  • The first steps have been taken to ensure that the platform's games are available for playback on any device (the initiatives have been tested in the USA, Great Britain and Canada);
  • A recommendation system has been launched for games, highlighting games in accordance with the interests of users;
  • in total, at the end of the year, a library of 86 titles will be available to users (as Netflix notes, all games are available without advertising, micropayments and the need to pay extra for anything).

In the report, Mike Verdu, vice president of Netflix's gaming division, notes that about 90 games are currently being developed for the platform. "We've just started," Mike emphasizes.

The game functionality appeared on Netflix two years ago, at the end of 2021. Since then, the total downloads of the platform's mobile games have reached 80 million. At the same time, according to the analytical company Apptopia, less than 1% of the service's users play on Netflix every day (its total audience is around 250 million).
