Netflix’s Games collection will grow to 50 games by year’s end


Netflix’s Games service was introduced last year, allowing customers to download and play certain Android and iOS games at no additional charge to their subscriptions. According to a story in the Washington Post, the business plans to expand its catalogue of games to around 50 titles.

There are no commercials or in-app purchases, thus we’re referring to games that run on your smartphone, but you don’t have to pay for them (similar to Apple Arcade). In contrast to GeForce Now or Google Stadia, this is not an online gaming service.

A smartphone game and a TV programme based on the board game Exploding Kittens seem to be in the works for this business. The mobile game will go live in one month, while the TV programme will debut in 2023.


Among Netflix’s current offerings: The Witcher, Arcane (based on League of Legends), Cuphead, DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, Castlevania, and The Cuphead Show. As an example, Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story uses the company’s name and logo in a third-party game.

Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3: The Game, which are based on the blockbuster programme, are available via Netflix’s Netflix Games service. The games and the programme may both be found by searching for “Stranger Things” on the app. To make games in-house, the business has bought three gaming companies so far, including Next Games, which just launched Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales.

A list of 11 programmes based on video games can be found on Netflix, and you can see it here. Pokemon, Minecraft, Pac-Man, and a slew of more classics make the cut. Black Mirror and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s special episodes, as well as all-interactive series like Trivia Quest, blur the borders between shows and games on Netflix.
