Netflix Acquires Night School Studio

Netflix has announced that they have acquired Night School Studio, a developer founded by former Telltale Games employees that released Oxenfree, an intriguing supernatural mystery game. Even with the Studio being a Netflix subsidiary, Night School Studio confirmed that Oxenfree 2‘s development is still underway.

In a press release, Night School Studio co-founder Sean Krankel said, “Night School wants to stretch our narrative and design aspirations across distinctive, original games with heart,” Krankel said. “Netflix gives film, TV, and now game makers an unprecedented canvas to create and deliver excellent entertainment to millions of people. Our explorations in narrative gameplay and Netflix’s track record of supporting diverse storytellers was such a natural pairing. It felt like both teams came to this conclusion instinctively.”

Furthermore, Night School Studio is now officially the first game developer under Netflix’s wing. There have been multiple leaks and rumours that tell Netflix has wanted to jump into game development, partnering with several developers including Telltale Games on a since-cancelled Stranger Things adventure game—to release projects tied to its licensed IP. The studio had also introduced “Stranger Things: 1984”, “Stranger Things 3: The Game”, “Card Blast”, “Teeter Up” and “Shooting Hoops” titles on Android in the past in few selected regions such as Spain and Italy. Now with the acquisition, it seems like more games would soon be making their way to even more countries.

“We view gaming as another new content category for us, similar to our expansion into original films, animation and unscripted TV,” the company said in its shareholder letter.
