Netflix did highlight three things that users get with its games - no ads, no in-app purchases, and games included with your Netflix membership. It also said in its announcement that this experiment is still in the early stages. “It’s very, very early days and we’ve got a lot of work to do in the months ahead, but this is the first step,” Netflix said. There’s no word on when the games will be released in other markets.
Netflix last month announced that it will offer games on mobile devices first, and then expand it to more devices later. The company’s expansion into gaming will initially be more experimental, and reliant on user feedback. The streaming service is also looking into gaming as a new content category, and it will build on previous similar content such as Black Mirror Bandersnatch and Stranger Things games.
