Previously, we reported on the European Union’s (EU) Digital Markets Act that would force Apple to introduce alternative app stores and sideloading on the iPhone. Well, it looks like Microsoft is keen on using the new EU law to offer its services on iOS devices as it was revealed that the company is planning to launch an Xbox Games Store on the iPhone.
Microsoft’s gaming chief Phil Spencer teased the matter in an interview with the Financial Times, saying that the store may be introduced as early as next year. However, this may be dependent on regulators approving Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
The acquisition will essentially give the tech company a wider range of mobile games for the proposed iOS Xbox Games Store. Besides that, the move is also dependent on the new EU law coming into force.
