Netflix has announced its first gaming acquisition. The company bought Night School Studio, which is best known for supernatural thriller Oxenfree.


Netflix announced the deal on September 28, although its financial terms remain undisclosed.

“Our explorations in narrative gameplay and Netflix’s track record of supporting diverse storytellers was such a natural pairing,” Night School Studio founder Sean Krankel stated, adding that the team will maintain its creative vision and culture.

As part of the acquisition, all games from Night School Studio will be added to the Netflix library. Netflix VP of game development Mike Verdu noted that the company plans to work with more developers and deliver a collection of exclusive titles.

Night School Studio, founded in 2014 by former Telltale and Disney employees, is known for games like Afterparty, Next Stop Nowhere, Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltrati0n.ipa, and Oxenfree.

Netflix first announced its gaming ambitions in July. The company later added two Stranger Things titles on Android devices in Poland and recently rolled out its new services in Spain and Italy, adding three more games in the library. According to the latest reports, Netflix is now also working on VR game Eden Unearthed for Oculus Quest.
