Exclusive games will be released for foldable Galaxy

Samsung, apparently, also wants to turn its smartphones into more gaming solutions, following the example of Apple. To do this, the Korean giant has enlisted the support of such giants as Epic Games and Krafton.

Starting yesterday, Samsung Gaming Task Force teams began working in different countries. More precisely, such teams were formed in South Korea, Great Britain, China, and Ukraine. Samsung specialists will work together with developers and publishers from Epic Games, Krafton, NCSoft, Nexon, Smilegate, Kakao Games, and Pearl Abyss.

Samsung wants to follow Apple’s lead in turning its foldable smartphones into gaming consoles.

Interestingly, this entire project is supposedly aimed exclusively at foldable smartphones. At least the Hankyung resource says that we are talking about developing new and optimizing existing games only for foldable smartphones Galaxy Z. Considering that foldable smartphones are still very far from the dominant generation in Samsung sales, this decision looks somewhat strange. Global shipments of foldable smartphones are expected to increase 37.7% next year to 25.2 million units, according to TrendForce. There is a high probability that deliveries will exceed 70 million in 2027. But this is the total sales of all brands.

But the choice of companies for cooperation is as obvious as possible. Let us remember that Epic Games developed the super-popular Fortnite, and Krafton is responsible for PUBG.

Let us remember that Apple, with its iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, also focused on games, announcing ports of full-fledged console and computer games.

It is also worth remembering recent data that Samsung is preparing a gaming service exclusively for its devices. We are likely talking about the above project.
