VR And Video Games on Netflix Might be Just Behind The Corner

Netflix has just made clear that it is expanding into virtual reality (VR) and gaming. This comes after years of hitting away topics about trying VR and steps toward video games.

On Thursday, Netflix published a deal with Shonda Rhimes. Shonda Rhimes is a powerhouse TV producer whose Bridgeton popped on Netflix to become what the firm says is its most-watched series ever.


The contract binds Netflix's relationship with Rhimes in many ways, like facilitating feature films and funding in her company's programs to expand Hollywood in front of and behind the camera.


Moreover, Netflix said that the Rhimes partnership involves the possibility to only produce and share potential gaming and VR content. The chance to pursue possible games and VR is far from a full-throated devotion. However, it's still the most obvious public report so far that Netflix is interested in expanding into video games, a major game category, and virtual reality, a fledgling one. But the Netflix team didn't comment yet.


The world's biggest streaming video service, Netflix hinted lately that it would be involved in stepping up its pursuit of gaming. The company has teased the games before in its interactive choose-your-own-adventure-style programming like Bandersnatch and through some licensing and marketing partnerships.


In April, Netflix's chief operating and product officer said that Netflix's interest in gaming may be propelling.


Greg Peters said,

"We're trying to figure out what are all these different ways ... we can deepen that fandom, and certainly games are a really interesting component of that. There's no doubt that games are going to be an important form of entertainment and an important modality to deepen that fan experience."

Also, Netflix executives have routinely stated that the firm wanted to wait and see how VR improves before jumping in. VR and video games on Netflix might be just behind the corner.
