Overwatch isn't coming to Mac

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Blizzard has a long history of bringing its games to Mac platforms in addition to Windows PC, but it appears that's not the case for the company's new shooter, Overwatch. At BlizzCon today, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed that Blizzard is focusing its PC gaming efforts on a Windows version only.

Kaplan acknowledged Blizzard's longstanding support for the Mac, but said there are technical challenges surrounding a OS X version.

"Currently with the technology behind Macs and the way Overwatch runs it's just too challenging for us at this point to support it," Kaplan said. "Our focus right now is entirely on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4."
