Earlier this year, Netflix had officially revealed its plan on entering the gaming market, with titles based on its popular series being launched. Now, it seems that another beloved series, Squid Game, could be entering its gaming roster.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the online video streaming platform’s VP for the Asia Pacific content, Minyoung Kim, talked about the possibility of turning the explosively successful series into a video game. As of right now, the second season for the South Korean series is currently in talks to start as well. The senior official of Netflix has confirmed that the company is “looking into” the possibility.
The news of the series being turned into a video game arrives as the show saw massive success across the globe. Minyoung Kim even added that she has been receiving requests to bring the series into a video game format. She added that “We’ve been getting an overwhelming but happy volume of requests from the organization — from the consumer product department, from the gaming group, from our other international teams.”
Notably, the executive also confirmed that the team is looking into creating a roadmap for its future ventures as well, stating that “My team’s role is to really look at all of those opportunities together, to create that roadmap for the Squid Game IP.” Additionally, Minyoung Kim believed in aiming towards increasing the viewers’ affinity towards their content by adding, ”We are looking at multiple different areas — from games, consumer product, and others — to really figure out what we can bring to our audiences to increase their affinity toward our content and give them more joy while staying true to the world that our creator has built.”
