F1 2017 is a pleasant surprise. But at the same time, we have no news on other games that have been announced months ago.
I understand that Feral wants to prioritise a simultaneous Mac-PC release. Otherwise, Mac users who use Steam may purchase the PC version before the Mac version is released, to benefit from Steam Play. If the Mac version isn't out yet, I suppose this doesn't bring any money to Feral. I confess I purchased Dirt Rally during a Steam sale to play in on macOS when it's out. :shy:

I held off buying Deus Ex: Mankind Divided while it was on sale which was hard. I thought the release was only a matter of weeks after Feral's statements about the Metal enhancements made with macOS 10.12.4 which is now months ago. Given the lack of communication about those long announced games, I can understand anyone who isn't willing to hold off their purchase any longer.

I've held off on Deus Ex so far as well.

It's nice to save some money now and then by getting a PC Steam key at a discount and I think Feral still get paid if you run the game on MacOS (which I always do as I don't even have Windows) but there is a time limit otherwise it is assumed to be a PC sale so I try my best to wait until the game release date for Mac has been announced and avoid it getting classed that way.

Also looking forward to Dirt Rally too but getting F1 2017 out whilst the season is in progress will no doubt help sales and feedback from beta testers (on PC) has been positive.
