Netflix has acquired Boss Fight Entertainment, the developers behind mobile game Dungeon Boss, the company announced this week.
Having only launched mobile games in November 2021, Netflix seeks to expand a library for subscribers of titles that are free from the common ads and in-app purchases in current mobile games.
While news that Netflix has acquired Boss Fight Entertainment might lead some to think they’ll be making stuff just for Netflix, studio founders David Rippy, Bill Jackson and Scott Winsett expressed their appreciation of Netflix’s model.
The studio founders stated Netflix will allow them the freedom to focus on creativity and not be bogged down by monetization. Boss Fight Entertainment becomes the third studio to join Netflix after the purchases of Next Games and Night School Studios in 2021.
Boss Fight Entertainment describes themselves as the following.
