Netflix continues its acceleration in the video game sector with the acquisition of Seattle-based development studio Spry Fox. Amir Rahimi, vice president of game studios at Netflix, said in a blog post that near the one-year anniversary of the games’ release a year ago, Netflix bought Spry Fox. It is the sixth indoor game studio.
Spry Fox is an award-winning independent studio focused on original games. Their unique approach to development has spawned works like Triple Town, Alphabear, and Cozy Grove and will help accelerate the creative development of Netflix.
Rahimi said Netflix is looking forward to building games with a studio whose values — relentlessly focused on employee and player happiness — align with his own:
Our gaming journey has just begun, but I’m proud of the foundational work we’ve done to build our internal creative capacity so we can bring the best gaming experience possible – without ads and without in-app purchases – to our members as part of their loyalty.
We remember one of Netflix’s most recent acquisitions in September this year, when the platform acquired Night School Studio, developer of the hit indie game called Oxenfree (available for iPhone, iPad and Android).
The broadcast TV giant is accelerating in the mobile gaming industry. In October, it announced that 55 new titles were in development, while according to a company executive, Netflix is seriously considering launching a cloud video game streaming service.
