Netflix continues to staff up for its expansion into gaming: The company announced Thursday that it has acquired Boss Fight Entertainment, a game studio led by former Zynga executives. Boss Fight reportedly employs 130 people, and Netflix said that the studio will continue to operate out of its offices in Dallas, Austin and Seattle. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Boss Fight was founded in 2013 and has since published just one mobile game, Dungeon Boss. The studio is being led by three former Zynga executives who all worked on the casual game giant’s CastleVille title.Prior to acquiring Boss Fight Entertainment, Netflix bought Oxenfree maker Night School Studio as well as Finland-based Next Games. Netflix has signaled that it plans to significantly grow its gaming efforts in the coming months: In January, executives told investors that they were looking to license major gaming IP this year.
