Netflix has acquired its third game studio in six months with the purchase of Boss Fight Entertainment for an undisclosed fee.

Headquartered in Texas, Boss Fight was established by a group of former Zynga Dallas and Ensemble Studios employees in 2013 and is best known for its work on mobile strategy RPG, Dungeon Boss.

The news comes just months after Netflix acquired Oxenfree developer Night School Studio and Finnish studio Next Games, the latter of which cost the streaming company $72 million.

Netflix said it wants to continue expanding its Netflix Games service, which offered access to five titles when it launched in November 2021, by strengthening its in-house creative development team.

"Boss Fight's mission is to bring simple, beautiful, and fun game experiences to our players wherever they want to play," said the studio's founding members.

"Netflix's commitment to offer ad-free games as part of members' subscriptions enables game developers like us to focus on creating delightful game play without worrying about monetization. We couldn’t be more excited to join Netflix at this early stage as we continue doing what we love to do while helping to shape the future of games on Netflix together."

Boss Fight will continue to operate out of its studios in Dallas, Austin, and Seattle post-acquisition, with Netflix eager to "tap into great creative talent beyond California."
