According to the reports, Netflix is ready to open a brand new internal game studio in Finland. The very first in-house video game studio will be started by Netflix in Helsinki, Finland. This is because Finland is all set to expand its empire when it comes to different types of mobile games.
The news was leaked just after Netflix experienced a huge decrease in subscribers for the very first time. Even though Netflix has tried its level best and worked on cost-cutting, a senior analyst said that Netflix is playing offense. The company is ready to do whatever it takes to get more subscribers on board in a small period of time.
“To Netflix’s credit, they’re a long-term thinker,” Forte, the analyst said. “If you think about their pivots, the DVDs to streaming, they think long-term and they act long-term.” In addition to this, he also said that Netflix was not able to find out if gaming will work in their favor or if it will take away the audience.
According to Netflix, a lot of people are streaming video games and watching series every now and then. Therefore, they decided to come up with a game studio in Finland. Not only this, but Netflix now also has a chance to monetize its franchises, and the Stranger Things series is one of them.
The head of the brand new gaming studio in Finland will be Marko Lastikka. By profession, he is currently the Vice President of Netflix.
“This is another step in our vision to build a world-class games studio that will bring a 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,” he said.
The new studio in Finland will be built from scratch. Skilled and expert professionals will work like a team and ensure that the best studio is made. In addition to this, the best pieces of equipment will be used. Netflix does not want to compromise with anything which is why it is all set up to make a studio that grabs the attention of the audience.
