Fortnite Game Files Suggest It's Coming To Apple TV, Dataminers Say
It's already on every platform in existence (pretty much), and the game's free-to-play feature has caused it to become one of the most accessible titles in the world.
So when well known miners StormLeaks discovered the phrase "TVOS" in the game's code, which they reckon links to Apple's TV service, we weren't surprised one bit.
If you didn't know, tvOS is the exclusive operating system created by Apple which runs through all their fourth-gen and later digital media player, and a number of games can already be played on it.
All people would need to play Fortnite is a compatible controller. Imagine trying to build and shoot your enemies simultaneously with the standard Siri Remote? No thanks.
An official SteelSeries "Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller" is already on the market, but at the price of £46.99. Surely people aren't that desperate to play Fortnite on the Apple TV?
If fans of the free-to-play game already have a console, PC, or mobile device, we can't really see the attraction for this release - but Apple aren't the only media company delving in this area.
Streaming service Netflix has teamed up with developers TellTale to create a Stranger Things video game for their users, and what controller you have for this title really doesn't matter.
More importantly, Netflix, in itself, is an app found on services like Apple TV. It can also be accessed through video game consoles - with proper controllers. See where I'm going?
Maybe Epic Games should look at putting their game onto a streaming service rather than another platform? People could just pay it through their Smart TVs without needing to buy a console.
Also, it would be great for players who were running low on hard drive space. Streaming wouldn't take up any memory, you'd just need a really good Internet connection.
What do you think about this news? Can you imagine Fortnite on Apple TV? What about Netflix? Let us know.
