In recent months, Netflix has been increasing its efforts in the gaming arena.

Discussions about a GTA Game for Netflix
So far, Netflix has been acquiring licenses for various IPs like Assassin's Creed or creating games based on their own properties, such as Stranger Things. According to The Wall Street Journal, more licensed titles will become a part of their game catalog.

They also mention that Netflix has had talks with Take-Two Interactive about "plans to release a game within the popular action-adventure series Grand Theft Auto." This information comes from sources familiar with Netflix's plans.

This indicates that they aim to bring a GTA game to their platform. At this point, we don't know which game(s) this might be. If it's a mobile-only game, we could potentially see the GTA Trilogy remasters on Netflix and GTA+.

Why Would They Pursue This?
The GTA series is one of the biggest in entertainment history. GTA V has sold nearly 200 million copies, and the entire franchise has now reached 400 million in total.

While GTA 6 will be Rockstar Games' flagship release in the coming years, Netflix can strike a substantial deal to license the GTA name.

This isn't the first time Rockstar Games has entered into licensing agreements. Currently, they are funding the Max Payne Remake, with Remedy Entertainment handling development. We also learned last month about the cost Take-Two charges for GTA V to be part of Xbox Game Pass.
