Netflix has agreed to acquire mobile game developer Boss Fight Entertainment. It should help the streaming giant expand its gaming catalog.
The acquisition was announced on March 24. Although the financial terms of the deal remain undisclosed, the streaming giant said that Boss Fight Entertainment will continue to operate out of its offices in Allen, Austin, and Seattle.
According to Netflix, Boss Fight should help accelerate the company’s ambitions in the gaming field as it continues to build its in-house development team.
“Netflix’s commitment to offer ad-free games as part of members’ subscriptions enables game developers like us to focus on creating delightful game play without worrying about monetization,” the Boss Fight founders said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to join Netflix at this early stage as we continue doing what we love to do while helping to shape the future of games on Netflix together.”
Boss Fight Entertainment was founded in 2013 by former Zynga Dallas and Ensemble Studios devs, David Rippy, Bill Jackson, and Scott Winsett. The team is best known for its RPG Dungeon Boss for iOS and Android.
