Is Apple preparing its arrival into the cloud gaming arena?

It seems that the reasons for Apple’s veto on the Microsoft Project xCloud and Google Stadia gaming platforms are becoming clearer. Indeed, the apple company has quietly filed a patent where the company is already talking about its own cloud platform for playing games from mobile devices with 5G.

Is Apple is preparing its Cloud Gaming?

Apple’s patent was filed on February 6, 2020, but was only officially published this week. The title of the patent is meaningful enough to understand Apple’s reasons for blocking all cloud gaming offers on iOS. Here is the official description:

“Enabling Interactive Service for Cloud Rendering Gaming in 5G Systems”. Those who don’t understand a word of English will therefore understand that this patent is there to prepare the arrival of a service designed to facilitate on-demand gaming in a similar way to current streaming services.

“The game is stored, executed and rendered on a remote server and the video results are streamed directly to the computer device,” reads the patent description. “This allows users to access games regardless of the capacity of the user’s computing device, since the remote server is responsible for storing, executing and rendering the game”.

Apple Cloud Gaming 5G

In the same document Apple seems to specify that for it the 5G system would not be totally efficient for providing a cloud gaming service. Following this observation, it seems that Apple is developing multiple mechanisms to address common problems associated with cloud gaming, such as speed, capture, latency and overall performance.

Apple’s foray into the world of gaming is an old sea snake. However, this incursion into cloud gaming would only confirm that the target is only “casual” from our point of view.
