The developer behind games like Cozy Grove, Triple Town, Alphabear and Road Not Taken has become Netflix’s sixth in-house game studio.
When David and I founded Spry Fox twelve years ago, our goal was to create a place where kind, creative people could create beautiful, original games in a supportive environment that would bring happiness to the people who play them. After many heartfelt conversations, we are all excited to join Netflix as our own game studio and create amazing games together.
Studio co-founder Daniel Cook said.
In a post on their website, Spry Fox stated that existing games would remain available in their current forms on existing platforms.
As for future games, the company added:
Everyone at Spry Fox was already focused on making Cozy Grove 2, as well as a larger, non-violent MMO that we still don’t publicly reveal about, and that’s still the case. So there are no changes to our current development efforts.
Last October, it was announced that Spry Fox had partnered with Epic Games to create the most ambitious game to date. Powered by the Unreal Engine, it was described as “a non-violent, persistent multiplayer game designed to encourage friendship and reduce loneliness in the world.”
