Netflix moves into gaming

19 July, 2021

Netflix is going to start offering video games on its service in the next year, per a little scoopage from Mark Gurman and your author this week:

Mike Verdu will join Netflix as vice president of game development, reporting to Chief Operating Officer Greg Peters. Verdu was previously Facebook’s vice president in charge of working with developers to bring games and other content to Oculus virtual-reality headsets.

The games will appear alongside current fare as a new programming genre -- similar to what Netflix did with documentaries or stand-up specials. The company doesn’t currently plan to charge extra for the content.
