Netflix is coming to E3 to talk about turning their shows into games

A tweet announcing the Coliseum panel says it will cover "news about its plans in the gaming space", and an attached image names the panel, "Bringing Your Favorite Shows To Life: Developing Netflix Originals Into Video Games".

In a rehearsed conversation between the E3 and NX Twitter accounts, Netflix confirmed that it would be showing off the upcoming Stranger Things game. What can attendees expect to learn during the discussion?

Netflix is about to share some fresh details about its ambition to push deeper into video games, ahead of the planned launch of its Stranger Things game coming in July to PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile platforms. But, Netflix also explicitly uses the term "video games".

I wouldn't be remotely surprised to learn about something related to Black Mirror, especially considering how Netflix executives have already talked about wanting to produce more interactive content in the vein of Bandersnatch.

The totally out-there series The OA seems like it's loaded with opportunities to explore corners of its story in game form. The shows those games are based on is up in the air, and Netflix's big library of original programming makes it tough to take an educated guess. And now, we learn that Netflix will be there with some gaming news to announce. Whether we'll see such an attempt, beyond Stranger Things 3, reflected at E3 2019 is not known.

This year's E3 festivities kick off on June 11th and conclude on June 13th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
