Aspyr Says Farewell To Snow Leopard
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 20 comments

Aspyr Media has announced it will discontinue support for OS X 10.6: Snow Leopard, once Apple releases OS X 10.9: Mavericks. Future patches and upgrades for its game titles will no longer work on machines running 10.6. The first games to lose Snow Leopard compatibility will be Star Wars Jedi Academy, Star Wars Jedi Knight II, and Call of Duty.

What This Means

This means all future releases of Aspyr games, as well as any patches and updates for existing Aspyr games, will no longer work on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). To continue to play the latest Mac games, we recommend upgrading your computer or operating system to the latest version of OS X.

Why did Aspyr stop supporting Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)?

Each new version of an operating system that Apple releases contains significant changes that Mac developers must adapt to. Reacting to the quickly changing OS environment on the Mac requires non-trivial resources, meaning Mac developers must make decisions about how to invest these resources.

Currently 8% of our existing audience is on Mac OS X 10.6, down from 16% in January. With the release of Mavericks we anticipate this reducing further, and therefore we believe our efforts should be focused on supporting the growing audience.

How do I find out what games are affected?

We suggest you follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus, or subscribe to our thread on support.aspyr.com.

The first set of games that will no longer support OS X 10.6 are below. These games are being updated because of known bugs introduced in Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks).

  • Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
  • Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
  • Call of Duty
