Apple has reportedly held secret discussions with developers about a possible new gaming subscription service, according to Cheddar.
The report, citing five unnamed sources, claims Apple is mulling the idea of building its own “Netflix for games” service to grant iOS users with access to a selection of pay-to-download games from the App Store for one monthly set price. Apple has supposedly been in talks with developers since the second half of 2018, with the service said to be in the early stages of development.
Cheddar’s report doesn’t go into detail about the supposed gaming subscription service, nor does it give any idea of pricing. Apple has its App Stores filled with games for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV, a lot of which are free-to-download titles with the option of in-app purchases such as coins.
Apple would supposedly act as a publisher for the titles joining the service, allowing the company to sign developers with exclusivity deals that result in a series of gaming titles only being available to download on Apple products.
