Nobody knows. It's been 17 months since the release and there is still no Mac depot on Steam. I bought it for ca $14 when Epic had Mega Sale and you could get an additional coupon.

It's not very helpful when you neither write a quote nor post a link to the tweet. Many people like me don't have twitter but I checked their channel on the web and I still can't find any new tweets about Mac. I only found this from Sep 10: "Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time in Civilization VI for Mac?"

On Sale on both Steam and Epic again. Any new developments on Epic's Mac exclusivity?

Not to harp on the Borderlands thing, but… the general consensus is that Tiny Tina's DLC was the best thing ever, and now they've gone and made a whole new game out out of it.
This looks to be exclusive to Epic (and consoles) until later in 2022, and no mention of a Mac version :(

I'm hoping it will get a mac version just purely based off of the fact that Borderlands 3 got a mac port pretty close to release that was done in-house by Gearbox.

Borderlands 3 is still exclusive to Epic on Mac, so that wouldn't block it. Here's hoping they do an internal port again!
