Netflix recently announced they will be expanding their services to include video games, primarily on mobile. It's possible that the streaming giant could team up with Sony on this front.

We've heard many rumours over the last year or so that Netflix are seriously considering adding video games to their service and last week it finally happened. The streaming giant officially announced they will be working on games, primarily mobile titles, that will be added to the service at no additional cost.

Shortly after the announcement, data miners found PlayStation-related images of DualSense and Ghost of Tsushima on Netflix's app, which fueled speculation that Netflix and Sony might team up to bring games to the streaming service. 

It's also worth pointing out that Sony's recent job listing revealed plans to expand their portfolio with mobile games. 

"You will be responsible for building and scaling a team of mobile leaders and will serve as the Head of this new business unit within PlayStation Studios."

So, could this be just a coincidence? Yes, that's entirely possible and would not be surprising since the entertainment industry giants are looking to expand their services al the time.

But the PlayStation-related images on the Netflix app are indeed interesting. Whether the images are just simple placeholders, some sort of an ad on Netflix's behalf, or a clue that Sony and Netflix working together, it remains to be seen.

Hopefully, Netflix will give us more details about their upcoming video games in the next few months or so.
