Netflix is hiring for a new AAA game for PC



This summer, analyzes were released that indicate that less than one percent of all Netflix subscribers consume Netflix games on a daily basis. Yep, Netflix is investing in games, which you might have missed. Currently, you get access to roughly 40 mobile games, all of which require Android or Apple format.

Now, however, we get strong indications that Netflix intends to invest in PC games – from triple-A cuts (via Mobilegamer). Now they intend to hire a game director for their Los Angeles-based studio. What this will do is build the vision for a “brand new AAA PC game”.

"We’re looking for a creative and highly-skilled Game Director to help us forge the game direction and creative vision on a brand-new AAA PC game. As Game Director, you will be the creative leader of one of Netflix’s first generation of internally developed original games.

That sounds ambitious. Having experience from fps and/or shooters in third person is meritorious.

The Los Angeles studio is led by Chacko Sonny, who was previously the executive producer of Overwatch. Netflix has previously said that via the LA studio it wants to invest in cloud gaming, but that it should work as a complement to the Netflix range rather than competing with game consoles. The question is how this will go. With the Stadia shutdown fresh in mind, there are question marks to clear up.
