Rumor: Apple to Release a Controller

Our friends over at Pocket Gamer reported today that they have spoken to multiple developers who say Apple is planning to release an official game controller. The developers, who asked to remain anonymous, said they met with Apple representatives at GDC 2013 in a room reserved under a pseudonym.

The article doesn’t specify what devices the controller would work with, but if Apple is planning to open the Apple TV to third-party developers, it makes sense that they’d offer a controller to go along with it. Whether that controller would be compatible with iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches, is another question.

None of the developers we spoke with at GDC mentioned talking with Apple about a controller, but one said that Apple did mention they were working on “something big,” but declined to elaborate.
