Netflix Buys Another Game Development Studio, in Push to Enter the Gaming Market

Another game creator has joined Netflix’s ranks. Boss Fight Entertainment, a mobile studio situated in Texas, has been bought by the corporation. Following Oxenfree creator Night School and Next Games, the team behind a Stranger Things puzzle game, Netflix has acquired a third gaming firm.

Boss Fight’s previous games include Dungeon Boss, a mobile strategy game; the company was launched following the shutdown of Zynga’s Dallas office, which created the Facebook game CastleVille.

The announcement comes as Netflix makes a strong push into the gaming industry. In addition to acquiring existing studios, Netflix has made mobile games a part of its subscription package — three new games were announced just this week — and is experimenting with interactive programs, like Quiz Quest, a daily trivia game set to debut later this year.

“This studio’s considerable expertise producing blockbuster games across genres will help speed our ability to give Netflix members with fantastic games wherever they want to play them,” Netflix’s VP of game studios, Amir Rahimi, said in a statement about Boss Fight.
