Been out of the loop for years. Do they now make big AAA games for Mac?

    Any really big and exciting titles to look forward to if you're on Mac? Or everyone just hopping over to Bootcamp to play PC version?

    Saw Doom Eternal advertised this morning and had a look - not on Mac. Shame, that Doom games were always fun. Not much time for games in recent years so no PS4 anymore and wouldn't be bothered to go and install on bootcamp. Would just like something to throw on occasionally to take a break from whatever I was up to on Mac OS.

    Same as it ever was: some AAA games get ported (e.g. the Tomb Raider reboots), most don't.

    If you really want to play everything, you will have to resort to use Bootcamp. Until Apple kills it by switching to ARM CPUs.

    I'm not sure what you consider "big AAA" games, but most of Blizzard's games are released with both PC and Mac support.

    World of Warcraft is pretty big, probably the biggest game if you consider content. It is also the highest grossing game of all time.

    It has had Mac support even before its launch.

    Gaming, I am PC. For many years I used Bootcamp when traveling and wanted to tote just one computer (MBP) with me. Apple has no real interest in mainstream gaming, not for the MacOS. Maybe it is just the reality of where they headed as compared to Windows. You can buy a $1000 gaming PC, and a lower end Mac and you are covered. Today if you need to travel and play games on the road, via bootcamp, you are looking at a $3000 MBP.


    When is that projected to happen?

    Maybe next year, if the rumours are to be believed.
