Netflix announced today that it will release at least 40 mobile games in 2023, which will be in addition to the 55 already available to its subscribers on iOS and Android. It will also continue to work on its cloud gaming technology that was announced in October 2022.
Netflix's vice president for third-party games, Leanne Loombethe, has confirmed that 70 new games are being developed by third-party software companies, adding to the 16 games that the company's own studios already produce.
Loombe: "This year we will continue to expand our portfolio. That means new games every month. That includes indie gems, award-winning films, narrative adventures, puzzle games, and everything in between."
Leonne has also returned to talk about cloud gaming, confirming the state of play: "We are just getting started, but we are committed to making sure that you may enjoy our video games anywhere on Netflix. We believe that cloud gaming will allow us to give access to games on any screen."
Netflix appears to be concentrating heavily on video games, although for the time being only 1% of subscribers have tried them, according to Apptopia data. We'll see if things change in the future.
