Gaming services have picked up quite a bit of attention lately. With services like PlayStation Now and Xbox Game Pass, players can quickly bulk up their catalog of games. Players pay a monthly to yearly fee, and from there, they have access to all kinds of video games. Although, we’ve seen other companies get involved, such as Amazon with their Luna service or Google’s Stadia platform service. Netflix is another service that has expressed interest.
Today we’re finding out that Netflix has picked up the developers Night School Studio, Night School Studio was founded back in 2014, and their claim to fame was the breakout hit Oxenfree. This was such a beloved indie title that allowed them to continue making video game titles, including Afterparty. However, it was relatively recent that we got word of an Oxenfree sequel being developed.
That has fans thrilled to get a chance to go back into this franchise once again, but now it looks like Netflix has picked up Night School Studio altogether. So far, Netflix hasn’t progressed much with its gaming division. It seems as if they are sticking with mobile games, which will be free to Netflix members. While they are still working on this venture, it doesn’t look to affect Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals.
Fortunately, it looks like this upcoming Oxenfree installment will continue in development. Currently, the game is expected to launch within 2022 for the PC, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch platforms. From there, we might see Night School Studios exclusively develop games for the Netflix streaming platform. We may even see more video game development studios get picked up in the future, but only time will tell.
