Now, its games portfolio is about to swell beyond your wildest dreams. The streaming giant recently announced that it's poised to drop 40 new games in 2023.

On top of that, Netflix is currently developing an additional 70 games with its partners. In adding so much variety to its library, Netflix is hoping that every subscriber will find something that they love, whether it's an indie darling, an award-winning hit, an RPG, a narrative adventure, a puzzle game, or whatever floats their boat.

Early this year, Netflix dropped "Ubisoft's Valiant Hearts: Coming Home" in the app. It was the first of the three exclusive games the developer plans to release on the streaming service. Next up? "Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace," a rogue-lite game set in a bizarre world that is reminiscent of the universe inside "The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot."

Netflix boasts that Too Hot to Handle: Love is a Game is one of its most-played games to date. After all, it is based on its ultra-popular dating show Too Hot to Handle. The dating simulator allows players to build their own character before getting thrown into a hot, steamy, romantic location, just like the show, to meet attractive singles.

Will the next Too Hot to Handle game be similar? We're unsure. Aside from revealing that it will be partnering with Nanobit again for the next game, we have no idea what this new game will bring.

Netflix Games release date: Later this year
