Just two years after unveiling its ambitious plan to become a go-to destination for must-play games, Netflix has made significant strides toward this goal. The past year saw the launch of 40 games, including popular titles like Grand Theft Auto Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, Football Manager 24 Mobile, and Storyteller.

One notable accomplishment is the introduction of Netflix’s first internally developed games, Oxenfree II: Lost Signals and Netflix Stories: Love is Blind. These games showcase Netflix’s commitment to expanding its gaming portfolio with a variety of experiences, building a collection that appeals to all members.

Netflix is making significant progress towards its long-term vision of making games playable on every device. The recent test rollout for games on TV and computers in the US, UK, and Canada is just the beginning, with plans to extend this experience to other countries and add new games for testing.

In a bid to enhance user experience, Netflix has updated the games row, curating mobile games to be more tailored to individual preferences. With an expanding games catalog, recommendations are set to evolve and improve over time, ensuring members discover games they love.

By the end of the year, Netflix will offer a total of 86 games, all included with every Netflix membership and free from ads, in-app purchases, or extra fees. Additionally, nearly 90 more games are in development, indicating that Netflix is just getting started in the gaming arena.
