Civ 6 is free now on the EGS. Looks like the leaks were correct.

Only for Windows...

Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for free at Epic? How can you say no? Okay okay, Windows only, but still! Borderlands 2 is one of my most played games... Almost the best shooter in existence!

Very disappointed! Was hoping to get TPS for free since I already have 1-2 but only for Windows? Who cares... Not impressed at all by Epic with all these Windows-only giveaways.

A lot of the games Epic has given away, has had Mac versions.

I don't know about before but these recent and newest giveaways are for Windows only, like Civ 6, Borderlands 2 and TPS. Clearly they don't care about Mac anymore.

I suspect the EGS does not have the option to share revenues with third-party porting companies, like Steam does. Hence, no Mac ports from Aspyr and Feral there.

Sounds strange. They surely have other Mac games? I think it's not a matter of technical impossibility but the low number of Mac players and poor profitability. Long live Steam!

All first party ports, which don't require any mechanism for revenue sharing.
