Is not that Netflix is hosting some of the great productions in the world of videogames, but it has also set itself the challenge of becoming one more space to be able to play. The announcement of its association with Ubisoft is the last stone on a path that has only just begun.
And although collaborations with third parties is very important, it is even more important to be able to create your own product. That is what the streaming platform intends with the opening of its internal studio in Helskinki, Finland. Marko Lastikka will be the director of the developer and will aim to create “original and deeply addictive games with no ads and no purchases.”
Amir Rahimi, vice president of video game studies at Netflix, has explained that they will create works “with different strengths and areas of interest, (…) that will accommodate the diverse tastes of our members“. We also have to add other teams such as Next Games, Night School Studio and Boss Fight Entertainment.
Unlike the other three, this new study has an internal character since it has been founded by Netflix itself. The remaining trio was acquired over the last year through million-dollar purchases. Meanwhile, Cyberpunk Edgerunners rises as a total success, at the same time that we await the Onimusha anime or the Sonic Prime series.
