Apple’s Gaming Subscription Plan is Not the Game-Changer Crypto Micropayments Will Be

Apple Inc. is quietly planning a “Netflix for games” service that will allow users access to a bundle of games for a monthly subscription fee, NYC-based financial news service Cheddar reported Monday: Apple ($AAPL) began privately discussing a subscription service with game developers in the second half of 2018, said the people, all of whom requested anonymity to discuss unannounced plans.

It’s unclear how much the subscription will cost or what kind of games Apple will offer. The service is still in the early stages of development, and Apple could ultimately decide to abandon it.

The company has also discussed partnering with developers as a publisher, according to two people familiar with the talks, which could signal Apple’s ambition to assume distribution, marketing, and other related costs for select games.
