LinkedIn Set To Introduce Gaming To Its Platform

LinkedIn, a popular business and employment-focused social media platform owned by Microsoft, is planning to enter the lucrative gaming market to boost its revenue and user interaction and expand beyond recruitment and networking.

LinkedIn, which has more than 1 billion users worldwide, is reportedly developing puzzle games for its users to create a new gaming experience, according to a new report from TechCrunch.

The initial three games in development include “Queens,” “Inference,” and “Crossclimb”, which are based on puzzles. It is said to be almost similar to the hugely popular and successful puzzle game Wordle, which has millions of players.

“We’re playing with adding puzzle-based games within the LinkedIn experience to unlock a bit of fun, deepen relationships, and hopefully spark the opportunity for conversations. Stay tuned for more!,” a LinkedIn spokesperson told TechCrunch.

However, LinkedIn has not commented on whether Microsoft is involved in the company’s gaming project.

While a company spokesperson confirmed that they are working on gaming, no official launch date has been announced yet.

Nima Owji, an independent app researcher and web developer who looks for the upcoming features of different apps, shared on X that LinkedIn appears to be exploring gaming initiatives.

Uncovered code snippets indicate organizing player scores by workplace, potentially creating a light-hearted competition between companies by ranking them based on these scores.

 

Reacting to the images of the three games shared by the researcher on X, the LinkedIn spokesperson said that they are not the latest versions.

Currently, it is unclear if the three games in development will be available only to free users, LinkedIn’s paid subscribers, or both.
