Apple announced yesterday that they are transitioning from Intel to Apple Silicon. Im sure the Apple community here are very interested to know what Blizzards plans are for this.
Not a peep about Apple Silicon from Blizzard yet is a little disconcerting, but considering that WoW is using Metal, I’m at least a little hopeful that that will survive going forward. I can’t imagine the transition there would be extraordinarily complicated if the legwork has already been done on Metal support.
Starcraft 2 and Diablo III seem like games that will be able to exist fine under Rosetta 2, even with the performance hits, but I wouldn’t hold my breath for Diablo IV.
Really, really hoping that they do make this available on Mac. I’ve been playing and been a Diablo series fan since the beginning, playing D1 on a Power Macintosh G3 on MacOS 8. Today I’m on a Mini with an eGPU and play D3 regularly. I know I’m in a small minority and this is a business for Blizzard/Activision but I can hope right!
