Job advertisement reveals that Netflix is ​​working on a big game

Streaming giant Netflix has already added mobile games as part of its service. But there are indications that the company has much bigger ambitions for the gaming medium. Mobilegamer.biz is now reporting that Netflix is ​​currently looking for an experienced game director to work on a new blockbuster, something revealed in a job advertisement:

“We’re looking for a creative and highly-skilled Game Director to help us forge the game direction and creative vision on a brand-new AAA PC game. As Game Director, you will be the creative leader of one of Netflix’s first generation of internally developed original games.”

Based on the rest of the post, we assume that it is an action game with a live service setup, although it is unclear whether it will be first or third person. Among other things, we can read:

“Extensive experience working on live service games; Deep understanding of highly engaging content and how to deliver it.”

“Experience with FPS and/or Third Person Shooter games is preferred.”

Netflix’s new game studio in Los Angeles is led by Chacko Sonny, who was previously an executive producer on Overwatch, so perhaps Blizzard’s popular game series can provide a taste of what’s to come.
