These days there is nothing but discussion of Squid Game, the new Netflix television series that managed to beat Bridgerton and become the most successful product for the company dedicated to streaming on demand at launch.
Given the warm welcome and the potential that Squid Game could still epress in the coming years, Netflix is considering expanding the franchise and perhaps even creating a video game for it.
“My team’s role is to really look at all of these opportunities together, to create that roadmap for the Squid Game IP,” said Minyoung Kim, VP of content for the Asia-Pacific division. Netflix. “We are looking into different areas, from games, to consumer products and others, to really understand what we can bring to our audiences to increase their engagement with our content and give them more entertainment, while staying true to the world our creators have. built”.
It is not clear at the moment what kind of project Netflix could try its hand at, and especially if it will decide to adopt the triple A model for PC and consoles, or if it will remain anchored to the mobile market. The concept of the television show could well lend itself to Battle Royale, and in this sense Tom Henderson has indicated Squid Game as the possible evolution of the genre.
