Is it possible for a MacOS (M1 MAX) support in 2022?

I know it may sound funny, but I was playing the game for a long time, but AFK since this year because of my work, I have to move around a lot so I can't use my high-end PC at home for a long time. I am not buying a Gaming Laptop, it will become a heavy burden for me during business travels... 

Thus, the new MacBook Pro with M1 MAX chip is a big solution for me, it is portable and with a gpu has the power between RTX3060 and RTX3070. I had played many game that support MacOS such as Dota2, Wargame, Total War series and Baldur's Gate through rosetta 2. They ran great on this Laptop with 3K resolution and VH graphic, which gave me the confidence for playing more great games with such an all-in-one portable device. 

I think M1 MAX has the power required for Tarkov, but since the game does not support MacOS, Parallels doesn't transfer the power of the hardware well and there is a anti-cheat compatibility issue with ARM architecture, so the game is unavailable on this machine.

Since Tarkov is made through Unity which supports MacOS and Apple Silicone, I wonder how much will a Mac version of Tarkov cost and does the Dev has a plan on it?

It is a desire from a few gamers, but many of my friends switched to M1 MAX MacBook Pro for the all-in-one feature, and many of us do expect more games on Mac since M1 MAX is a great chip.

First rule of PC gaming - You don't get a Mac to play games.

If you had the money to buy a Mac Book Pro M1 then you had more than enough money to get a very good slimline gaming laptop. A slimline gaming laptop will do even more than a Mac because MacOS is so restrictive.

The amount of folks that want it ported to Mac is very low, so low that the cost of doing so wouldn't justify it.

I mean yeah you have a point but I also travel and purchased a small light slim laptop (XPS actually) which is brilliant for work on the move - it would be nice to have something that size to play games but it wasn't the purpose of the purchase.

OP probably did the same and then later down the line fancied tarkov on it too. Can't blame them really, bloody good game :D

yes... actually Tarkov is the only game I play that doesn't run on Mac... I need the macOS environment for work and the mobility of MacBook, so the gaming laptops are not an option for me in the first place...

I agree, there should definitely be a version that supports the new M1 line up, given that there is a growing player base that would definitely appreciate such a game on the macs.
