Mac seems to be the 2nd best platform for Personal Computer gaming, but it was always lacking a lot of cool video games historically speaking. Blizzard actually has a lot of games for Mac, but is this the case with Overwatch 2? Prima Games has dug deep into the unseen depths of the internet to deliver the answer to this question to our readers.

Is it Possible to Play Overwatch 2 on Mac Natively?

To the great disappointment of many, no, it’s not possible to play Overwatch 2 on Mac natively. Overwatch 2 has reached the likes of PlayStation, Xbox, and even Nintendo Switch consoles, but still hasn’t reached the good ol’ Mac.

Luckily, on some Macs, you will be able to perform a workaround to try and run it.

When is Overwatch 2 Coming to Mac?

We don’t know. Blizzard has not made statements about this. Maybe there is an issue with Mac’s system that disallows them to code OW2 for Mac, or at least makes it very difficult. Overwatch 2 may come to Mac next year, in 5 years, or never, we never know.

Is Overwatch 2 Ever Coming to macOS?

We truly would love to see this happen, but at this moment there is no information that would steer this answer into a positive or a negative one. The possibility is still open, and it’s Blizzard’s turn.
