Mac gamers seem to have found an installer for Overwatch on their platform, though if it is, the game is not yet playable.

Spied overnight on Reddit’s r/macgaming, it appears the .zip installer was found by altering the URL for the PC download. The link to the installer provided comes from Battle.net.

Polygon has reached out to a Blizzard representative for clarification on its plans for Overwatch. Blizzcon is underway this weekend but no announcement regarding Overwatch on Mac or any new platform has been made yet.

In May, Jeff Kaplan, the director of Overwatch, said Blizzard was “open minded to” launching on Mac but “we just sort of need the priorities of our development process to line up with the capabilities of the platform in order for it to become a reality.” (12:45 of the following video.)

Users provided these screenshots of Overwatch appearing in Battle.net on its Mac application and downloading but noting that it is not yet playable.
