Apple is reportedly planning a Netflix-like game subscription service
Revealed by five anonymous sources familiar with the matter, the new service would function largely like a “Netflix for games” by giving consumers access to a specific number of titles if they choose to pay a monthly fee.
Apple reportedly began talking with game developers in the second half of 2018, so the plans for the service are still relatively new. Nevertheless, the Cupertino giant does seem pretty keen at the moment as it’s also reported to have spoken with certain developers about becoming a publisher. This could ensure a steady stream of games for its service but would see Apple cover costs related to marketing and distribution.
At the moment, details such as the games that could potentially be included or the cost of the service remain unclear. However, it’s possible that Apple will include both iOS games for use on iPhones and iPad and certain Mac titles for use on computers.
