MTG Arena’s State of the Game for April just dropped, and it came with some big news for people (like me), who have been waiting for news on a Mac client since late last year when it was initially announced.
Starting with the June 2020 game update, MTGA is transitioning to a 64-bit client. The game will stop supporting its 32-bit client soon thereafter. This is one of the biggest obstacles that’s been preventing it from appearing on Apple’s macOS, which is exclusively a 64-bit operating system.
Skybox Labs (who has worked with Xbox Game Studios on Halo and Minecraft), is helping Wizards to make the port happen, and they’re saying a macOS client should arrive by the end of this summer.
Wizards went on to confirm that mobile support is coming – and is planned for this year as well. Much like Hearthstone, Wizards claims that they’re aiming for universal support with cross-play, so players can have access to all of their cards, decks, and modes no matter where they are.
