The recent news that Netflix is planning on adding video game streaming to its platform raises many questions, but it also carries a lot of potential.
Despite being the current largest subscription-based streaming service on the planet with over 200 million memberships, Netflix isn’t immune to the need for exponential growth. However, with new competition like Disney+ and HBO Max popping up, it’s had to work harder to keep attracting new users. So in a way, it makes sense that Netflix would try to add video games to its already quite extensive service.
“With video gaming growth climbing during the pandemic, surpassing movies and music, it can be a way to stand apart from its current competitors,” said Mika Kujapelto, CEO and founder of LaptopUnboxed, in an email interview with Lifewire.
