In mid-October, CD Projekt RED warned that the system requirements for the first two parts of the role-playing game series The Witcher for macOS would soon increase. Today, November 20th, things change came into force.
We would like to remind you that CD Projekt RED announced the planned changes on October 16, giving users 30 days to prepare. In fact, the adjustment took a little longer – 35 days.
With the release of the patch on November 20, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings received support for Apple Silicon M1, M2 processors and macOS Ventura (13.0).
In order to run both games on the Mac via Steam, GOG and the App Store, you now need macOS 11.0 or newer – the developers have stopped supporting OS X 10.7.5, OS X 10.8.2 and macOS 10.15.
The move away from older versions of macOS is due to support for Apple Silicon technology, JIT-compatible memory management and Apple’s game controller tool suite, which require at least macOS 11.0.
Who has support for OS
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the only update coming to the original The Witcher any time soon. The Polish studio Fool’s Theory (Seven: The Days Long Gone) is currently developing a remake of the cult game.
