BioShock Remastered macOS Plans

Feral Interactive announces they are bringing BioShock Remastered to macOS, saying their port of the shooter update should arrive before the end of the year. The Windows version of this arrived last year along with a remastered edition of BioShock 2, but there's no word on a macOS version of the sequel remake, at least for now. Here's the plan:
Feral Interactive today announced that BioShock™ Remastered, a version of the ground-breaking first-person shooter running in 1080p, will be released for macOS later this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the game’s original release. Originally developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K for Windows and console, BioShock is set in the decaying underwater city of Rapture, a darkly imaginative and brilliantly realised gameworld.

Set in an alternative 1960, BioShock Remastered plunges players into Rapture, an individualistic utopia gone badly wrong. To survive the onslaughts of the city’s deranged inhabitants, players must rewrite their own genetic codes, and find creative ways to combine their terrifying new powers with devastating weapons. With a thought-provoking storyline, BioShock is at once beautiful, thrilling and frightening, and explores profound ideas about science, politics and human nature.

“We’re thrilled to bring an enhanced version of BioShock to macOS 10 years after its original release,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “The improved graphics make the most of the spectacular art direction, combining art deco design, science fiction themes, and a horror sensibility. There’s never been a better time to visit Rapture.”

BioShock Remastered will be available as a full game (not an update) from the Feral Store, Steam and the Mac App Store.

System requirements and pricing will be confirmed closer to release.

I guess there are enough desperate Mac nerds to make this viable. A port of a lacklustre, flawed update when they would probably get better value/results out of a cheap PC or x360 for a small fraction of their next MacBook upgrade.

Not hating on macs, the MacBook Pro I bought my missus 6 years ago has outlasted and out-performed several PC laptops for general computing and is still getting free OS updates. Just don't ask them to play games!

Wasn't the windows release of this uninspired and a flop?
