Sinful Ideas Apple Arcade
For now, that seems to be Apple’s trend on its Apple Arcade platform. When Apple announced this platform, it claimed that all titles would be exclusive and would not be available on the App Store
It could not be maintained because Apple also did not let the developers live. A little over a year ago, various rumors suggested that Apple had crippled the development of various games because they did not offer what Apple was looking for: to entice users to play on a recurring basis.
At the moment, it seems the only way to grab and hold the attention of Apple Arcade subscribers is adaptation of the bestselling titles from the App Store
How long are you sure about this trend? Well, until Apple announces that Apple Arcade is shutting down. It doesn’t look like the number of truly exclusive titles is going to increase in the coming months unless a developer of what Apple is looking for.
And if he presses that key, I doubt he wants limit your success to Apple Arcade. Time will tell how long is left to live this platform, but personally I bet it’s not a lot.
