Microsoft is planning a new games app store for iPhone

Microsoft wants to launch a new app store for games on iPhone and Android as soon as next year, according to the CEO of Microsoft Gaming, Phil Spencer.

Speaking in an interview ahead of the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this week, Spencer hinted at bringing a new way of playing games to iPhone once the EU’s Digital Markets Act comes into play in March 2024. These new EU rules would require Apple to open iOS to third-party app stores like Alt Store.
