Netflix is starting to lean towards Video Games?
Netflix has hired a former EA executive Mike Verdu, to lead a Netflix game-publishing team, this in itself is big news. While Netflix has yet to announce it, this should be some good evidence towards their future plans. After all, why would they need the EA executive to join if they weren’t planning to publish any games in the future?
Mike Verdu has worked in game development and publishing for more than 25 years, it’s safe to say that if Netflix is indeed planning to become a game publisher, they’ve chosen a great choice and played their cards in the correct place.
