Apple is believed to be working on a game controller for the 2020 Apple TV to promote its Arcade gaming service. The upcoming Apple TV is expected to feature an A12X Bionic processor, which should provide the necessary levels of performance for smooth gaming.
The gaming industry has a worldwide estimated annual revenue of almost $200 billion per year, so it’s only natural for companies like Apple to want a slice of the action. Apple announced its Arcade gaming subscription service last year, and to further support gaming on its devices it is believed that Apple is developing a game controller to be used with its Apple TV.
To add to this, it's because of this right here that Apple is making their own game controller. Not staying in expect that controller at WWDC, but it's always a possibility https://t.co/7xrR73zwin

According to the Twitter user Jioriku, the controller could be released during Apple’s WWDC event later today, adding that the Apple TV 6 is an “absolute powerhouse of a machine” with its A12X Bionic chip. Despite using the A12X-chip, it seems like Apple is sticking to its previous design of the small “black box everyone had come to love”.
