GTA isn’t the only high-profile gaming giant to make its way to Netflix Games. It has also been confirmed that the critically acclaimed roguelike Hades will be released on iOS via Netflix Games sometime in 2024. According to developer Supergiant Games, the title “should run great on an iPhone or iPad running iOS 16 or later.”

Between Hades, G.T.A., and the acquisition of some serious talent, it looks like Netflix Games is picking up steam.
