After dabbling with interactive TV shows and that one Stanger Things mobile game, it was only a matter of time before Netflix dived headfirst into the video game industry.

Now, we have confirmation that Netflix is making moves to realize its gaming ambitions, starting with mobile games.

According to Netflix, its foray into the video game industry will focus on mobile as it looks to expand on previous projects like Black Mirror Bandersnatch.

The best part about this is that Netflix is making these upcoming games available to all subscribers at no additional cost.

Netflix intends for the production of its video games to keep pace with its upcoming films and TV shows.

Rumor has it that Netflix is also planning a partnership with Sony's PlayStation brand. 

Because Netflix already has an extensive library at its disposal with more coming, an expansion into video games makes sense.

Let's just hope that Netflix can maintain the quality of its video game offerings to be equal if not better than its TV shows and films.
