Apple has plans to create a subscription service geared towards gaming. There is no information on whether it will be aimed toward games within the App Store or a more premium experience. Apple sees the potential in the gaming industry with a reported $70bn in 2017 and an estimated $139bn in 2021.
Apple is seeking to counter declining iPhone sales. I would be very interested in a much more premium service with more of a focus on core gamers. I think this would be an opportune time to establish a gaming audience on Mac, a platform not known to be for gamers.
