In September, Netflix announced that Zynga’s Marko Lastikka would be partnering with the streaming giant to deliver “a variety of delicious and deeply engaging original games” at its new studio in Helsinki. Lastikka is the COO as director of the studio and works with Netflix following the acquisition of Night School Studio, Next Games and Boss Fight Entertainment.

“This will be a game studio that we build from the ground up,” said Netflix vice president of game studios Amir Rahimi. Rahimi added that it will be Netflix’s “second game studio in Helsinki alongside Next Games, which became part of Netflix earlier this year.”

Elsewhere in the games, the witcher 3 is getting a state of the art makeover. CD Projekt Red has announced a stream to reveal exactly what’s coming to the game in the update. Here we show you when and where you can watch the live stream.
