Five days ago, Šárka informed you about Netflix’s efforts to delve deeper into the world of video games. So far, the series-film giant has focused only on licensing its production to external studios and adapting games in the form of feature and animated series. In the future, however, he could create the games himself, and if speculation is confirmed, you could play them as part of your usual subscription.
This information, which has not yet been substantiated by any official announcement, is in a way supported by dataminer Steve Moser (thanks, VG247!), which found some interesting pictures in the Netflix iOS application. First of all, the logo is a shark fin, which is supposed to refer to the working name Shark for the alleged upcoming game service of Netflix. Moser even found a picture with a red “N” logo and the words “GAME”.
What’s much more interesting, however, are the other two images – one depicting Genie Sakai from Ghost of Tsushima and the other a pair of DualSense drivers, both related to Sony. And new speculations are in the world. What could a possible collaboration between Sony and Netflix mean?
Netflix’s gaming feature has a current working name of “Shark” and is represented by this image in their iOS app: a shark fin. Could an image of PS5 controllers and Sony’s Ghost of Tsushima (director’s cut coming Aug. 20th) indicate a partnership with $SONY?

It could mean practically anything. Netflix might be preparing series based on games from Sony, which seems unlikely to me, given that Sony itself has set up a studio to film adaptations of its games. Much more interesting is the theory that Netflix would launch something like PlayStation Now itself, streaming games that is the center of last week’s gossip.
The fact that the leaked images are only captured by DualSense drivers could indicate the possibility of playing Sony games on Netflix without having to own a PlayStation, that is, they would be streamed exactly as through PlayStation Now. At the moment, it may be an exclusive collaboration, but also one of many companies that Netflix will try to rush into its eventual gaming service.
If Netflix is really planning a gaming service, the question is how it will be charged. Earlier speculation speaks of including the service in a standard Netflix subscription, which would make the service decent to both the Game Pass and the Stadium. For now, however, we are still in the realm of fantasizing and we have to persevere before and if Netflix will actually announce its wider plans for the gaming segment at some point in the future.
