Back in 2016, BioShock: The Collection was officially announced, which for those unfamiliar is basically a remastering of old BioShock titles for the console. It was later brought over onto the PC, which had some wondering what about Mac gamers? The good news is that Mac users will be shown some love too later next week.

It has been confirmed that BioShock Remastered will be released onto the Mac on the 22nd of August. Note that this is not BioShock: The Collection which features several remastered BioShock games, but rather this seems to be a singular title. The game is priced at $19.99 which is pricier than the original games, but the original will remain in the Mac App Store for those who don’t think that the remastered graphics and enhancements are worth the price.

According to David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive, “We’re thrilled to bring an enhanced version of BioShock to macOS 10 years after its original release. The improved graphics make the most of the spectacular art direction, combining art deco design, science fiction themes, and a horror sensibility. There’s never been a better time to visit Rapture.”

That being said, we haven’t really heard much from the BioShock franchise ever since the game’s original developers shut down. However the franchise’s publisher 2K had previously reassured gamers that BioShock is here to stay, although what exactly is in store for the franchise in the future is unclear.
