Apple’s ranking of gaming software and services companies has dropped to the last place because of the new corona virus epidemic,media reported. Research firm GlobalData announced a sharp drop in sales of Apple’s game software theme scorecard, which analyst Rupantar Guha said could be attributed to changes the company has made to gaming revenue channels and the App Store and Apple Arcade as the new corona virus outbreak continues.
Apple, for example, removed Plague from the App Store in China in February, a move that slowed the company’s growth in China, the world’s largest gaming market.
In addition, Guha said it was unclear whether Apple’s free 30-day trial of Apple Arcade would be enough to attract large numbers of new users.
Finally, the global data analyst points out that, unlike rivals such as Google and Amazon, Apple has yet to make any progress in the eSports industry. “Despite Apple Arcade’s technical capabilities and potential eSports games, Apple has not benefited from the booming eSports market during the global blockade. “
By June 2019, Apple had become the world’s fourth-largest gaming company thanks to the rise of iPhones and mobile games.
At the same time, the company launched its $4.99-a-month Apple Arcade gaming service in September 2019, including more than 100 games developed specifically for its various platforms.
