Snapchat may be launching a new gaming platform next month, according to a report from Cheddar. The service (codenamed “Project Cognac”) was rumoured for a while.
The feature will reportedly be externally developed games that will work inside the Snapchat app.
While Snapchat isn’t exactly known for its gaming efforts, it did launch Snappables, a collection of AR mini-games on the platform last year, which ended up inspiring Facebook’s own AR games for Messenger.
Snap also reportedly bought out Australian game studio Prettygreat back in January, according to a report from CNET, which could further hint at a new gaming push.
Google is also about to make a big gaming announcement at GDC next month, possibly to launch its own platform.
The new games initiative will be unveiled at Snap’s first-ever summit for content and developer partners in Los Angeles on April 4.
