The Digital Markets Act of the European Union will then permit all game creators to build their own app shops, hence it has been suggested that Microsoft can launch its iOS app store by 2024.
Microsoft, the owner of the Xbox, aims to build its own play store for iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad as the European Union Digital Markets Act continues to permit all game developers to launch own play shops by 2024.
Depending on their compatibility with Apple devices, it is predicted that the Microsoft Playstore would include all current Xbox programmes in addition to some well-known Xbox titles.
All independent game developers will be allowed to freely build and sell games through their own play shops that can be downloaded on iOS and iPadOS thanks to the European Union’s Digital Markets Act.
Microsoft has joined the ranks of other businesses making preparations to launch their own play store for iOS devices, sharing the same concerns as many other game creators regarding Apple’s monopoly over the App store.
Phil Spencer, the head of gaming at Microsoft, first announced this information, stating that the business intends to launch its own playstore for both iOS and Android.
When Microsoft completes the $69 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard, the iOS Microsoft Playstore is anticipated to launch in March 2024.
Microsoft wants users to play its games and even related material on mobile devices, but the existing environment prevents them from doing so, according to the head of gaming. These ideas might materialise once the corporation launches its own playstore for Android and iOS devices.
With their own playstore finally available on iOS, Microsoft will be able to release all of its games there without ever having to put them in the app store, saving them the 30% revenue cut that Apple takes from sales.
