Netflix has announced its latest gaming push with the acquisition of developer Boss Fight Entertainment.
Boss Fight is the third studio bought by Netflix, following the acquisitions of Oxenfree developer Night School in late 2021 and Finnish studio Next Games earlier this month. The new acquisition is closer to the latter, with Boss Fight having a history in mobile game development and having an origin in Facebook game development.
Boss Fight will continue to operate out of its studios in Allen (Dallas), Austin, and Seattle.
In a statement, Amir Rahimi VP of game studios at Netflix said: “Since we launched mobile games to our members around the world just four months ago, we’ve been expanding our games catalogue bit by bit as we build out our in-house creative development team. So today, we’re excited to announce that Boss Fight Entertainment is joining Netflix.
“We’re still in the early days of building great game experiences as part of your Netflix membership. Through partnerships with developers around the world, hiring top talent, and acquisitions like this, we hope to build a world-class games studio capable of bringing a wide variety of delightful and deeply engaging original games – with no ads and no in-app purchases – to our hundreds of millions of members around the world.”
