Netflix announced the news in a statement from Amir Rahimi, vice president of game studios at the company.
“Since we launched mobile games to our members around the world just four months ago, we have gradually expanded our catalog of games as we grow our in-house creative development team. So today , we are thrilled to announce that Boss Fight Entertainment is joining Netflix.
“This studio’s vast experience in creating hit games across all genres will help us accelerate our ability to provide Netflix members with great games wherever they want to play them,” Rahimi continued. The studio is known for the mobile title Dungeon Boss.

They continued, “Netflix’s commitment to ad-free gaming as part of member subscriptions allows game developers like us to focus on creating enjoyable gaming without worrying about monetization. We couldn’t be more excited to join Netflix at this early stage as we continue to do what we love to do while helping shape the future of games on Netflix together.
In September 2021, Netflix announced that it was buying Without beef developer Night School Studios. “We are inspired by their bold mission to set a new bar for storytelling in games,” Netflix said at the time.
The following month, Netflix reassured investors that it wouldn’t rush to acquire game studios but wouldn’t turn down a good opportunity.
The streaming service then partnered with gaming agency RocketRide Games to help expand its library of titles.
