Perfect World says that following the Mac client’s recent struggles and the support required to solve them, it has decided to terminate the client.
“[W]e looked at our Mac support overall and determined that we cannot promise to deliver an experience on Mac that meets our expectations of quality. After heavy consideration, we have decided to end support for the Mac version of Star Trek Online on February 5th. No other version of Star Trek Online is impacted.”
The game’s Mac client will cease to be downloadable as of tomorrow, and the C-Store in that client will be shut down as well. Anyone currently playing on that client can continue doing so until it “become[s] permanently unavailable” in the spring. Reimbursements are on the way too:
“We will be canceling and refunding any active recurring subscriptions purchased between October 1, 2015 and today, including Lifetime Subscriptions. If a payment was made other than a credit card or Paypal, the value of the subscription will be reimbursed to your Arc Account Balance.
We will be reimbursing any Zen that was purchased through Arc or Steam between October 1, 2015 and today to your Arc Account Balance.
We will be reimbursing the value of any Packs purchased through Arc or Steam between October 1, 2015 and today to your Arc Account Balance.”
PWE recommends Wine and other Mac-environment simulators to players affected.
