Netflix is planning to enter the gaming world by offering a subscription based gaming service like Apple Arcade. It'll probably take a long time to launch, the plans are in very early stages as of now.

Hope they will plan for PC games too (Yet to read source news). Which are easy to launch in their platform like Google Stadia. 😋

After seeing Google stadia, i am pretty much convinced that no one except Sony and Microsoft can survive in gaming sector. The sector runs on exclusive and needs lots of exclusive to retain customers.

The company also officially unveiled its plans to enter the video game market, staring with mobile games, eyeing it as a new category that will help it attract and retain customers. “[W]e think the time is right to learn more about how our members value games,” it said in announcing Q2 results. Netflix said games would be included as part of the monthly subscription price of its core service.

“We view gaming as another new content category for us, similar to our expansion into original films, animation and unscripted TV,” the company said in the Q2 letter to investors. “Games will be included in members’ Netflix subscription at no additional cost similar to films and series. Initially, we’ll be primarily focused on games for mobile devices. We’re excited as ever about our movies and TV series offering and we expect a long runway of increasing investment and growth across all of our existing content categories, but since we are nearly a decade into our push into original programming, we think the time is right to learn more about how our members value games.”
