Apple Considering Plans For A Gaming Subscription Service

According to Cheddar, Apple is discussing with developers to launch a new gaming subscription service, the report cites five anonymous people who claim that the new gaming subscription service would work like Netflix for games, meaning players can play a variety of games after paying a subscription fee each month. 

Apple began discussing the gaming-related subscription services with game developers in the second half of 2018. It's unclear how much it will cost, and what games Apple will offer. There are currently a large number of games available in the App Store for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. As of now, the game subscription service is still under discussion, and will it be finalized or not.
Apple is planning a subscription service for games, according to five people familiar with the matter. The service would function like Netflix for games, allowing users who pay a subscription fee to access a bundled list of titles. 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.
That said, it could bring more visibility to paid titles like Alto's Odyssey and Monument Valley rather than free-to-play games like Fortnite that makes money from in-app purchases. The report also details that Apple seeks to partner with developers as a publisher, oversees marketing, distribution, and other  departments.
