A month later, job postings for the Los Angeles studio hinted at Netflix's ambition to create a PC game belonging to the prestigious category of third-person, triple-A action roleplaying games.

Although it's still early in the journey, Netflix's commitment to entering the triple-A gaming market is evident by recruiting highly experienced game developers and designers. However, it's important to note the cautionary tale of Google's Stadia streaming platform, which faltered and ultimately shut down in early 2023. Given Netflix's considerable size and influence, its entrance into this industry has the potential to be transformative.
