"Minecraft: Story Mode is a licensed 5-episode interactive narrative series coming to our service this fall", Netflix said in a statement. "There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today", the company said.
After some faucets got a little leaky at E3 2018, Telltale has quickly confirmed the existence of its next game - a new title based on Netflix's very popular Stranger Things series.
Update #2: There appears to be a job listing on Netflix's website for a Manager of Interactive Licensing who will, among other things, "use games as a marketing tactic to capture demand and delight our member community (ex: Stranger Things: The Game)". Despite all this, Netflix has stressed that they are not venturing into the gaming industry themselves. TechRadar reports that the streaming company has teamed up with Telltale Games (known for their point-and-click adaptations of The Walking Dead, Batman, and The Wolf Among Us) to distribute some of their games on Netflix this year. This would include Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and even smart televisions with a built in Netflix app. Chromecast might be possible if the user could input commands from their device.
The source has stated that playable demos have been in existence for almost a year, meaning that the announcement of a partnership may occur any day.
Update: Telltale has confirmed earlier reports about its partnership with Netflix. "A lot of boxes of many different varieties in homes-millions and millions of homes across America, where people don't even think game-playing is possible on them, but maybe they're watching stories or consuming narrative-driven content or streaming it". But if you were hoping this represented a first step toward the streaming of modern "AAA" games, the blockbusters like Assassin's Creed or Destiny, keep waiting.
