Netflix shows that its plan to expand in the video game sector is serious. And for this, the company’s strategy has been to bet on independent studios. Now, the streaming service adds its third acquisition in this area in six months.
His most recent purchase is Boss Fight Entertainment, a studio created in 2013 that is headquartered in Texas. Although the amount of the transaction has not been revealed, the company itself communicated through social networks that, from now on, it will be part of Netflix.

Boss Fight is renowned for the strategy RPG Dungeon Boss and was created by former members of Zynga Dallas and Ensemble Studios. The objective of this new movement is to offer a broader catalog of titles for those who are subscribed to the streaming platform.
“Boss Fight’s mission is to provide simple, beautiful and fun gaming experiences to all players wherever they want,” the studio explained after the purchase announcement.
“Netflix is committed to offering ad-free games to subscription members and gives us the opportunity to create delicious gameplay without worrying about monetization. We couldn’t be more excited to join Netflix and continue to do what we love while shaping the future of gaming on Netflix.”
Previously, the entertainment company had bought the Night School Studio and Next Games studios, so they were excited about the possibilities offered by this new acquisition.
“We have to differentiate ourselves by genius, it doesn’t make sense to just be there. we are definitely growing […] but we have to please our subscribers with the best in the business,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement.
