I thought we gave up on Aspyr already?
Do we really want go through that again?

On a side note, here's an interview on Aspyr's 25th anniversary with Ted Staloch and Michael Blair of Aspyr.

Yes we did, but we had no concrete statements. The only thing that helps here is "convincing money" out of apples postage. That is the only chance I see for mac-gaming to stay alive on ARM64. Most of my ASPYR steam titles do not wok on my M1 and if apple discontinues Rosetta2 that 99% of the rest will also be gone...man but I can still play casual on high-end apple-igp. The future is bright...

Apple supported Rosetta 1 for 5 years, before it was no longer available. I would expect a similar timeframe with Rosetta 2.

Four more years to go! Yay! :w00t:
