Netflix games are coming — and the reasons are very Netflixian. (Hint: Numbers)
Netflix’s subscriber base has reportedly dropped by nearly half a million in the US.
Netflix reported its worst slowdown in subscriber growth in eight years as people emerge from their pandemic cocoons. But it has an answer to that: Video games. On Tuesday, July 20, 2021 the streaming giant announced plans to begin adding video games to its existing subscription plans at no extra cost. The confirmation of the long-anticipated expansion came in conjunction with the release of its latest earnings report.
Netflix revealed that its initial efforts in gaming will be focused on mobile games.
What are we to think?
Is (No Man’s Sky) ‘NMS Mobile Netflix’ next?
Granted… ‘NMS the Game’ -or- ‘NMS the Movie’? — Both?
