Netflix acquires cozy games developer Spry Fox
by Adam Fitch ·
Streaming giant Netflix is continuing its push into gaming with the acquisition of cozy game developer Spry Fox.
The acquisition: It's Netflix's sixth in-house studio that's focused on games.
- Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed at the time of publication.
- Spry Fox was an independent studio best known for developing cozy games like Alphabear, Cozy Grove, and Triple Town.
- This deal aligns with Netflix's approach to its studios. Each team is focusing on creating a different style of game as the streamer looks to provide a catalog that has "something for everyone."
The big push: It's a year since Netflix began its expansion into games.
- Seattle-based Spry Fox will be the company's sixth dedicated in-house studio for gaming.
- "After many heartfelt conversations, we are all excited about joining Netflix as an in-house game studio and building amazing games together," said Spry Fox Co-founder Daniel Cook.
- In October, Netflix announced it would be opening a new studio in Southern California, joining the likes of Next Games, Night School Studio, and Boss Fight Entertainment in its portfolio.
