A library of Games That Offers Something for Everyone


“Whether you’re craving a casual game you can start from scratch or an immersive experience that lets you dig deeper into your favorite stories, we want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone,” Mike Verdu, Netflix’s VP of game development, stated in announcing the global launch of Netflix Games. The mobile games currently are available in Netflix’s app for Android devices when you log into your profile, via a dedicated games row and games tab where you can choose any game to download. 


Netflix is a One-Product Company 


The co-CEO of the company, Reed Hastings, in explaining the company’s second-quarter profits, stated that the drive into games and other areas like merchandise are not expected to become notable profit-generating ventures. Those initiatives are about “enhancing the big service that we have,” he said. “We’re a one-product company with a bunch of supporting elements that help that product be an incredible satisfaction for consumers and a monetizing engine for investors.”
