I purchased Elite Dangerous just before it came out, got the beta access and the lifetime pass, a lot of good that does me now. I played the heck out of it. I got my Imperial Clipper, and then my Imperial Cutter and getting to Elite status as a merchant in the process, before finding that hundreds of hours in there wasn't all that much more to do. When Mac users never got any of the additional horizon content even though much of it had nothing to do with planetary landings, I put the game aside and waited. I had hoped that Frontier would find a compromise, a way for Mac users to get some of the new content like fighters for my Cutter but apparently that was too hard?
I had kind of expected this announcement for a while now, either they were going to find a way for Horizon content to come to the Mac or we were going to get the boot. It was unsustainable that in the same game space you could play on your Mac and encounter PC users that have ships you can't buy, game changing upgrades you can't install, and other content you are unable to participate in. Given the complete radio silence from Frontier about the Mac version it seemed rather unlikely that all that silence was a good thing. But yeah even having a sneaking suspicion that the other shoe was going to drop this announcement sure does sting.
