Eurogamer is reporting that Netflix gaming studio is looking to produce an Action RPG according to job listings on their website.
Thought this might be worth it's own thread.
They also want to make this multimedia with other tie-ins, and have a narrative on the same level as Netflix's own original works. This of course means it could run the gamut from absolute garbage to deep and engaging prestige-tv level writing. Apparently they'll be using Unreal Engine, so I expect to hear about an Epic/EGS partnership for this, because Netflix is already a flaming money pit, why not waste some of Sweeney's cash on this a well?Netflix is developing a triple-A PC game, based on recent job listings posted for its game studio.
The job openings are available at the newly-formed Los Angeles developer, Netflix Games Studio, which was announced by the company's vice president of gaming Mike Verdu last month. The team is being lead by former Overwatch executive producer Chacko Sonny.
I can only imagine this being GAAS since they want to have tie-ins and as such, will want both to be ongoing for engagement numbers..
Or maybe this be struck down like one of their original shows/animation, that is, too soon? Could the tie in be better? Will this ever make it past the rumour/development stage?
I think all valid questions
