Will Citra support macOS now that its dropping OpenGL support?


#1

After macOS Mohave this autumn, OpenGL will no longer be supported on macOS. That means Citra will no longer work unless it adopts a Metal or Vulkan backend.

What will happen to Citra on Macs? Will it be abandoned?


#2

MacOS Mojave 10.14 will still support OpenGL but Apple now officially flags the support as deprecated.
With 10.15/16 Apple might remove the OpenGL support.

So Citra should run for recent MacOS users for a forseeable future but what happenes after that remains to be seen.
Currently there is nobody working on a Metal/Vulkan (via MoltenVK for example) backend for Citra.
It might happen before MacOS drops OGL support, it might be that Citra will not support MacOS for a while till Citra implements Metal/Vulkan.
Nobody knows currently.
