While all-you-can-consume subscription programs aren’t new, Netflix’s name has kind of been synonymous with that, which is why people call things the “Netflix” of something to indicate that you pay a single subscription and have full access to everything. It seems that that is the approach the company could go for for its video game service.
As some of you might have heard, it was recently rumored that Netflix might want to expand to video games. The previous report has since been corroborated by Reuters and Axios, both of whom have heard from their sources that Netflix is indeed considering such a move. The service will be similar to its video streaming service, where you pay a monthly subscription and you’ll be able to access all the games on it.
If that sounds familiar, it is because companies like Apple and Google have already launched similar services with Apple Arcade and Google Play Pass. It will be interesting to see if Netflix will be able to successfully expand to video games. The company has already expressed their interest in video games by adapting video games into animated series and live-action shows, like Castlevania and The Witcher.
The company had previously commented on the initial report by saying that they are looking to do more with what they refer to as “interactive entertainment”, but stopped short of confirming concrete plans.
