In light of Sony and EA electing to skip E3 this year, several other attendance announcements have cropped up. AMD announced it will have a presence at E3 2019 to discuss upcoming gaming products, and now Netflix revealed it will be at E3 as well, hosting a panel and hinting at some gaming news.

Netflix has been making some inroads in gaming lately, with its upcoming Stranger Things 3: The Game coinciding with the Netflix series' return for season three on July 4th. However, in a staged Twitter banter, Netflix revealed that its gaming ambitions go beyond just Stranger Things 3: The Game and that it had some "gaming news in the works."


In the Twitter thread, Netflix announced a panel called "Bringing Your Favorite Shows to Life: Developing Netflix Originals into Video Games." We know Telltale was working on a Stranger Things game before the studio shuttered; it's not outside the realm of possibilities that Netflix could be finishing the project.

We could also expect more news on Netflix's popular interactive streaming format, which has spawned titles like Minecraft: Story Mode, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, and You vs. Wild featuring Bear Grylls.

Minecraft: Story Mode..somehow brought about by Netflix? I never heard a thing about Netflix being involved with Minecraft.

Haven't they figured out by now that games based on TV shows always fail?

Before their bankruptcy, Telltale singed a contract with Netflix to release games on Netflix's platform, with Minecraft: Story Mode being the first one (and the only one they managed to do I think).

I dropped NETFLIX due from greed raising prices twice within a short time and also with Obama being part of a new documentary and pig face Amy Schumer being shoved down my throat on their main page months ago.

I have HULU $1 a month for 12 months, Amazon Prime and very happy with CINEMA app on my FIRESTICK. CINEMA app fills 99% of my needs.
