DirectX12 Mac Support This Summer

CodeWeavers has good news for Mac gamers, announcing reports DirectX 12 support is coming this summer to CrossOver, the software that enables PC gaming on Apple hardware (thanks 9to5Mac via Ant). The good news is that this will allow better performance, while the bad news is that this will arrive on a title-by-title basis. Here are some details explaining why this is the case:

While we are elated with this breakthrough, we acknowledge that our journey has just begun. Our team’s investigations concluded that there was no single magic key that unlocked DirectX 12 support on macOS. To get just Diablo II Resurrected running, we had to fix a multitude of bugs involving MoltenVK and SPIRV-Cross. We anticipate that this will be the case for other DirectX 12 games: we will need to add support on a per-title basis, and each game will likely involve multiple bugs.

Rest assured, our commitment to delivering DirectX 12 support on Mac remains unwavering. Our team is dedicated to pushing the limits one game at a time, and we look forward to continuing to make announcements as we add support for more and more DirectX 12 titles.
