Entertainment titan Disney has said that video games will not be part of its streaming service offering.
Speaking to investors yesterday - as reported by GameSpot - CEO Robert Iger (pictured) said that the company wants to focus on TV and film. This is likely due to the company's rather troubled history with video games; this is a market that it has tried and failed to make a dent in.
Earlier in the year, also talking with shareholders, the chief exec said that licensing its IP to third-parties is the best way of Disney being involved in video games.
"What we learned there is the consumer is mostly interested in movies and television shows. We wanted this to be a pure movie and television play for the consumer," Iger said about Disney+. "So we do not have any intention of adding more types of media to [Disney+]. I'm not going to get into the history of video games at the company; every time I mention it I seem to get myself in trouble."
