Rumors suggest that Apple plans to launch a gaming subscription service described as a “Netflix for games” (via Cheddar).
Apple TV Gaming
Cheddar cites five anonymous sources that said Apples started talking with game developers about a gaming subscription service in the second half of 2018. Apple could also act as a gaming publisher.
We know that Apple has thought about gaming for a while. Early in 2018 patents surfaced that mentioned “next-gen gaming technology” and included updating the Apple TV logo trademark with gaming references.
Gaming is a huge market and this could be a valuable addition to Apple’s Services business. The Apple TV just needs a proper gaming console.
