Netflix Developing Video Games Based On Their Shows

Video games sales exceeded $40 billion in 2018.

Netflix continues to expand its entertainment empire with video games based on their original series. Strange Things 3: The Game, which is based on the acclaimed sci-fi, horror show, will be available for sale on the 4th of July — the same day as the premiere of the new season.

The popular streaming service is also planning the same for The Dark Crystal: the Age of the series Resistance, which is a prequel to the movie of Jim Henson, 1982. The game is scheduled to be released at the end of this year..centered-ad {

.setCollapseEmptyDiv(true);

googletag.enableServices();

googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-body1');

});

Netflix is not creating or producing the games despite the fact that the company is the licensing of the characters outside of the studies.

"We are looking for opportunities to expand the universe of these movies and shows of other media," Chris Lee, director of interactive games at Netflix, said during a panel at the 2019 E3. "For me, it was very obvious to try to do that in video games."
