It looks like Netflix is ​​trying to push its gaming business further.

The streaming giant recently posted job listings for Game Director, Art Director and Technical Director at its Los Angeles-based studio, as seen first. Mobilegamer.biz.

All introductions mention that they work on “a new AAA PC game”. Additionally, the game director role is detailed, noting that the job involves being the “creative leader of one of Netflix’s first-generation internally developed original games.”

While Netflix isn’t new to games, this is the first time the streaming company has considered a PC title. The streamer added games to its mobile app last November and has launched several titles since then. In a recent investor letter, Netflix said it is currently developing 55 new games.

“We are focused on creating hit games over the next few years that will take our gaming venture to the next level. More generally, we see a big opportunity around content that crosses between TV or film and games,” Netflix wrote.

Netflix has previously said it is considering launching a cloud gaming platform, and in September the company formed its first in-house game studio in Helsinki, Finland.

Further, Netflix’s vice president of games Mike Verdue also hinted that the streaming giant may expand into the PC gaming space.
