devSin, Apple deprecated OpenGL so many years ago. Deprecated doesnt mean removing, just not going to be updated.
AFAIK, this is the first time Apple has officially communicated that OpenGL is dead and will be removed entirely in a future release (which is what the official deprecation notice implies).

I was a little surprised that Apple decided to officially "bless" nonstandard GPUs and continue supporting the Mac Pro 5,1. I wonder if there'll be expanded support for non-EFI GPUs (seriously doubt it, but I also think it would be folly to continue insisting on special GPUs for the new Mac Pro).

Deprecating OpenGL (and OpenCL) is definitely going to have a big impact on games.

Luckily, most of them were gong to break anyway when they dropped support for 32-bit, but it puts another firm shelf life on many games.

It had to happen, of course, but it's sad to lose some of the games that will likely never be updated (we may not even be able to play Diablo III on macOS in a couple years).

I wonder when Nvidia is going to come out of the closet with some proper macOS support again.
I mean, they're sort of stuck in a gray area.

For not actually having any business with Apple, they seem to be pretty decent. You can drop any reference Pascal card into a Mac Pro and have it basically just work.

I do wish Apple would just get over it and start using Nvidia chips again. I get it, they're a terrible partner, but for the sake of choice and variety on the platform (as well as just having a better product overall), I don't think the current stance of "never Nvidia" is really helpful.

I wonder if it required some kind of voodoo on their part or if Nvidia finally made a breakthrough with their Metal drivers.

Thanks to Deekin!
Deekin is the only memorable thing from SoU IMO. That campaign was even more forgettable than the OC.

HotU really was special, though.
