Netflix Could Get a New ‘Grand Theft Auto’ Game

According to a report from the report, Netflix Games is in discussions with Rockstar Games to develop its own version of Grand Theft Auto. The streaming platform is exploring the possibility of releasing a Grand Theft Auto game on its service through a licensing agreement with Take-Two Interactive, the game’s publisher.

It’s important to note that the potential Netflix Games version of the game would not be GTA VI, as the official GTA VI release is expected between spring 2024 and spring 2025. The Wall Street Journal also mentions that Netflix Games has already invested $1 billion in the development of games for its platform.

Currently, Netflix Games is only accessible on mobile devices. However, Rockstar Games has previously released Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for iOS and Android in the early 2010s. Additionally, Netflix Games is exploring licensing agreements to include popular mobile games in its catalog.

This news comes two months after Netflix’s announcement in August that it intends to expand its streaming service into the realm of interactive entertainment. Mike Verdu, VP of Netflix Games, stated in August, “Our goal has always been to have a game for everyone, and we are working hard to meet members where they are with an accessible, smooth, and widespread service.” He also mentioned that a limited beta test of Netflix Games was being rolled out to a small number of members in Canada and the UK on select TVs and would be available on PCs and Macs through on supported browsers in the coming weeks.
