Netflix bursts onto the gaming scene with two Stranger Things mobile games
The two games are being tested on the Netflix mobile app in Poland.
Netflix has finally pulled the trigger on its plans to enter the gaming world. The king of streaming apps has begun its dive into gaming with the addition of two Stranger Things mobile games to its Android app. As of right now, the games are only being tested in Poland.
According to a new report from CNET, Netflix has begun the process of adding games to its subscription. Initially beginning with a focus on mobile, the company has picked two Stranger Things titles, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3, to begin the process.
These aren’t brand new games. They were initially developed in 2017 and 2019 to coincide with seasons two and three of the popular show, and they were licensed on other platforms. Now, Netflix is looking to eliminate the middle man and begin releasing games on its own platform.
