One industry insider is claiming that Apple is ‘poaching’ engineers specifically from Xbox to help create its own video game console.
Last week, Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard had heads around the industry spinning thinking of the consequences the buyout would have on the video game industry at large. Consolidation can be a frightening thing as it seems the doors have been blown open thanks to the Bethesda and Activision purchases, meaning any company is now fair game for an acquisition. However, events like these tend to spur competition, and now a new player may be planning to enter the ring in the form of Apple. According to one insider, Apple is making moves to enter the gaming space with its own dedicated console.
Windows Central Reporter Jez Corden recently appeared on an episode of The Xbox Two podcast where he confirmed that he’s been hearing some mumblings about Apple creating its own console. Apparently, the company has been “poaching” engineers from the Xbox side to help get the console specifications laid out. Corden insists this rumor has been floating around for a while and that his sources aren’t exactly the best, but he believes the rumors are strong enough that a console is certainly something Apple is currently developing.
