When is Ghost Recon Wildlands coming out for Mac?
Though many games got given a rough release date at E3, Ghost Recon Wildlands is one of the few games that kept quiet. We estimate that it'll come out in 2016 or 2017, but it could go in the way of The Division and take years to be released for PC and consoles. But will it also come to Mac? We take a look at the Ghost Recon Wildlands for Mac release date rumours to find out whether it'll ever make an appearance on Mac OS X.
Ghost Recon Wildlands for Mac release date rumours
Ghost Recon Wildlands isn't expected to launch on PC or consoles any time soon, but many online sources are pointing towards a possible 2016 launch date.

The concept of having a Tom Clancy game available for Mac OS X isn't a new concept, as there have been various Tom Clancy titles available for Mac in the past. However, it seems to be a dying trend as the last Mac supported game is Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction, which hit the Mac App Store back in 2011 and was treated to its last update on April 19, 2012.
It's interesting to note that a Mac variant of the game wasn't announced until after the PC/console release (April 27, 2010), and came to Mac almost a year later (February 17, 2011) so a Mac port of Ghost Recon Wildlands isn't completely off the table just yet.
Let's take similar games for example - Call of Duty is a game that some would compare to the various Tom Clancy titles, and has a library of Mac supported games up to Call of Duty: Black Ops, which received its last update in May 2015. Although no later titles are currently available, it suggests that the Mac gaming isn't quite as dead as some are imagining, and developers are still spending their time updating the Mac variation of their game almost three years after release.
Based on all the above information, we're not 100 percent sure if Ghost Recon Wildlands will make an appearance on Mac OS X, but if it does we assume that it would follow suit of earlier Tom Clancy games and appear later than its PC and console counterparts, possibly some time in 2017. We've contacted Ubisoft on Twitter, and we will include their reply if they get back to us.
