Less than a year ago, console gamers welcomed the arrival of the PlayStation 5, one of the most awaited gaming consoles of all time. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Series S also rank high in the popularity charts. Apparently, Apple is expected to enter the gaming hardware field soon.
New rumors have surfaced online that the company is hiring Microsoft experts to develop its Xbox Series X and Series S game consoles. Apple is building the knowledge needed to build its own gaming console. In addition, Apple is also working with Ubisoft and Capcom.
Apple is also expected to conduct internal studies on the feasibility of building a gaming console that will rival the biggest players in the field. No other information about the potential game console is available from Apple at this time. More is expected to be known in the summer months, when the game console is already under construction.
It is also interesting to note that Apple is not a newcomer to gaming hardware. The computer giant introduced its own gaming console in 1996 with the aim of opposing the then popular game consoles Nintendo 64, PlayStation and Sega Saturn. But there was no success with the gaming console, so Apple abandoned it back in 1998.
