In a recent job listing, Netflix has enlisted cloud gaming specialists which hints at a new venture that the company might be exploring.

Protocol wrote that the job listing was looking for a security product manager with experience in handling cloud gaming challenges, an engineer who could support Netflix’s cloud gaming service, and a few more.

Launching a cloud gaming service will enable Netflix to branch out beyond mobile and venture into TV and PC games without the reliance on game consoles.

While talking to TechCrunch, the company said, “We are always looking for great talent to join our teams and are constantly exploring new product opportunities to enhance our member experience. We have nothing else to share at this time.”

Even though less than 1% of Netflix subscribers play its mobile games, according to Apptopia, the site has expanded its gaming library to include “Into the Breach” and “Before Your Eyes.”

Cloud gaming has become quite popular amongst gamers since they allow access to games without having to pay for pricey hardware. The global cloud gaming market size is expected to reach $20.94 billion by 2030, according to Research and Markets.
