Netflix has acquired its third game development studio, Boss Fight Entertainment.
Since the company made mobile games available to its members around four months ago, Netflix has been gradually building its in-house creative development team.
The first acquisition was Oxenfree developer Night School Studio, followed by Finnih’s studio Next Games.
“Boss Fight’s mission is to provide our players with simple, beautiful and fun gaming experiences wherever they choose to play,” said the studio’s founders. “Netflix’s commitment to offering ad-free games as part of members’ subscriptions allows game developers like us to focus on creating engaging games without worrying about monetization.
“We couldn’t be more excited to join Netflix at this early stage as we continue to do what we love to do while helping to shape the future of gaming on Netflix together.”
Boss Fight Entertainment was founded in 2013 by David Rippy (CEO), Bill Jackson (CCO) and Scott Winsett (COO). The Texas-based studio consists of developers behind titles like Age of Empires, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Halo Wars, as well as free-to-play titles CastleVille, Dungeon Boss, myVEGAS Bingo and Kingdom Boss.
Netflix says it’s still in the early stages of building “great gaming experiences” as part of its Netflix membership, and through acquisitions like this it hopes to build a world-class gaming studio capable of offering a variety of original games without a hitch -App purchases to hundreds of millions of subscribers.
