Believe it or not, tech giant Apple launched its game service Apple Arcade back in September more than nine months ago already. And since then, the platform aimed for Apple products has shipped some interesting additions that make Apple Arcade worth checking out. Releases such as Redout: Space Assault and Rayman Mini are just a few that shows the potential of unique releases for the service.
However, Apple is eager to bring even more fans to the platform in any way possible, that includes scratching some of the latter projects currently underway for more anticipated experiences. According to Bloomberg, it was reported that in efforts to gather a bigger audience, Apple has decided to shelve a selection of projects indefinitely.
While the projects available already are unique enough to define Apple Arcade’s potential, none have properly kicked off to bring an impressive influx of active users that Apple itself would deem successful. In a statement sent to Bloomberg, Apple shares that the firm already underway in working to reshape the service with new projects to sway players towards Apple Arcade.
Apple Arcade has redefined what a gaming service can be, putting unlimited play at the fingertips of subscribers and their families across all their Apple devices. We are proud to have launched the first-ever mobile game subscription service that now features more than 120 games, many of which are award-winning and widely celebrated for their artistry and gameplay. The vision has always been to grow and evolve the Apple Arcade catalog, and we can’t wait for our users to try the games developers are working on now.
Looking at the possibilities of contenders to arrive to the platform is left unknown officially. But when reflecting on the initial announcement of Apple Arcade, we learn that one game could be coming from Japan. In particular, Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames. Rectify Gaming previously reported that possibly one of the firm’s Platinum4 projects could be the Apple Arcade exclusive, but the announcement was ended up not being that.
