“Today CCP is excited to unveil work on a native macOS EVE Online client is underway,” the studio wrote. “The native macOS client will enable native support for macOS Big Sur and Apple’s powerful graphics processing framework, Metal. The move to Metal ensures the best visual experience for players on macOS, along with significant optimizations and performance improvements compared to the existing client.”
CCP notes that it’s expecting to launch public testing for the new client in the first quarter of 2021 and asks everyone to stay tuned.
