A data miner by the name of Steve Moser has unearthed a number of interesting information about Netflix’s upcoming game streaming platform from its iOS app. The data-miner claims that Netflix might partner with Sony in the future for its platform, and that the platform has an internal codename of Shark.
The dataminer has unearthed an image of Sucker Punch Studios’ Ghost of Tsushima, as well as two DualSense controllers from the Netflix mobile app. There’s also an image of a Shark fin, which suggests the internal codename for the project. He also shared an image of the logo, which reads “N Game.”
Of course, all of it isn’t confirmed at the moment, so best to take it with a grain of salt. However, the prospect of Sony partnering with Netflix to allow streaming of its first-party games is equal parts interesting and intriguing. More so, given the fact that Sony already has its PlayStation Now service that just received a batch of new games.
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? Cc @HedgeyeComm $NFLX pic.twitter.com/FLghlRlu20
