Netflix has been a giant on the video streaming market for a long amount of time. Even as the market became more and more saturated through the launch of competitors like Hulu, Prime Video, Apple TV, and more recently, Disney plus, Netflix has managed to not only survive but grow through the pandemic, going from $20.15 billion in 2019 to $24.99 billion. And now, reports suggest that Netflix might be trying to extend their market to video games, even if their only experience with games is choose-your-own-adventure titles, of which Netflix has a total of 13.

Netflix’s plans were first reported by the Information, reporting that Netflix was looking for an Executive for overlooking gaming efforts. The report did state that Netflix might be planning to provide a bundled library, like the Apple Arcade library or Xbox game pass, but they also state that none of Netflix’s plans were finalized.

Netflix’s game library will probably be more on the level of Apple Arcade, rather than that of Xbox Game Pass or PS Now. Apple Arcade has focused on mobile games, so it is still wishy-washy on whether Netflix will try to focus on PC games or stick to Apple Arcade.
