Netflix is ​​hiring game masters and architects for a ‘brand new AAA PC game’ job

News Summary:

  • The project has yet to be announced by the streaming platform itself. However, according to a job posting, Netflix needs a game director who “will be the creative lead of one of Netflix’s first generation of internally developed original games.”

  • Netflix is hiring game directors and engineers to work on a “brand new AAA PC game” at its new Los Angeles games studio.

Aside from multiple job postings, not many details about the new project are available.


The digital platform has previously launched some games, but they were specifically for cell phones. While many users are unaware of games on Netflix, the platform plans to venture into PC gaming and expand its audience.

The streaming giant had already rolled out its mobile games to Android, iPhone and iPad users last November. Also read – Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar in one Airtel plan: How to activate OTT services on your mobile number

By then, members could only play five mobile games – Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo and Rogue Games) and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop).

Last month, Netflix expanded cloud gaming by opening a new studio in Southern California.

In addition, in August, the platform worked on features allowing customers to play mobile games against each other and rank themselves on gaming leaderboards. Recently, Netflix’s VP of games, Mike Verdu, hinted that the company plans to expand its gaming catalog to PC and even cloud gaming.

He states, “We are very serious about exploring cloud gaming offerings so we can reach members on TVs and PCs. We are going to approach this the same way we did with mobile: start small, be modest, think about it and then expand. But it’s a step we think we need to take to meet members where they are on the devices where they consume Netflix.” For the uninitiated: Netflix recently announced a new feature that allows users to remove unwanted people from using their account. They can now opt out separately on different devices.
