It also said the initiative would include a partnership with Minecraft-maker Telltale Games that would feature a project combining Minecraft with the universe from the Netflix hit show Stranger Things. The test launch for this initiative will be Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1, which should arrive this Fall. The new series will be the latest addition to its growing collection of interactive stories, which include kid-friendly titles like "Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout", "Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale", and "Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile".

The company, which has worked on a property from just about every IP holder at this point, has confirmed that a Stranger Things game is in the works. "There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today", the company said. This game is launching as a standalone title on the Telltale platform at a later date.

TechRadar initially reported that the service will be announcing a partnership with Telltale Games that will bring Minecraft: Story Mode, the episodic series, to the service. But if you were hoping this represented a first step toward the streaming of modern "AAA" games, the blockbusters like Assassin's Creed or Destiny, keep waiting.

Forward-looking: Netflix is expanding it's library to interactive movies and games that increase viewer engagement create a new form of consumable media.

"We don't have any plans to get into gaming". TechRadar also speculates that as a result, certain battle sequences that are present in other versions of the game may be scrapped from the Netflix variant, with other similar modifications necessary for games to work without trouble with, say, televisions.

There are no specific details for the Stranger Things game yet.

With Netflix taking over the world with its original programming and vast amount of TV shows and movies, you'd think that it would be content with the money it's making.

The source has stated that playable demos have been in existence for almost a year, meaning that the announcement of a partnership may occur any day.

Obviously, the limitations of playing a game using streaming video is evident.

"And for us, we're looking at that".
