Humble Video Game Subscription Will Drop Mac Support

Humble is one of the few platforms available for Mac that offers a monthly subscription service in exchange for access to a large number of video games, platform that is also available for both Windows and Linux.

However, as the company has announced in an email that it has sent to all its customers, as of January 1, it will launch a new business model that requires a new application, a new application that It will only be available for Windows.

Thus, will drop support for both Linux and macOS. Humble Choice gives subscribers access to a selection of 10 games that they can keep forever.

Until now, this platform offered different subscription plans. However, as of February 1, will reduce all plans to one and it will only be available for Windows, a piece of news that only worsens the relationship between macOS and games.

According to what we can read in the email that sent to all users of this platformVia Neowin:

We want to let you know that as of February 1, the Mac and Linux versions of the DRM-free games currently on Humble Trove will no longer be available.

As a member of Humble Choice, you can still download them to keep for your personal collection until January 31. They will continue to be available within the new Humble app for those using Windows.

All games that have been distributed on this platform through other platforms, whether Origin or Steam, will not be affected by this new measure.

Users who had any hope that this platform received with open arms a large number of titles with the launch of the Apple Silicon, can already be forgotten.

As developer Steve Troughton says:

The ebb and flow of the Mac gaming ecosystem is pretty sad to see. Apple burned a lot of bridges with the 32-bit hack, the demise of OpenGL support, and mandatory notarization. Not to mention years of GPU performance at bargain prices.

Relying on iOS games does nothing to stop this widespread trend.
