Windows For Arm

Windows for Arm might come to M1: Playing AAA Windows games on Mac with Apple Silicon could soon be possible.

Apple in 2020 announced it will be transitioning all of its mac line from intel to its own custom-built silicon. This shift meant that bootcamp would no longer work as Windows for ARM was only available from OEM unlike regular X86 based Windows which can be downloaded from the Internet. 

Microsoft apparently had a deal with Qualcomm which made Qualcomm the exclusive manufacturer for the ARM based chips that would run Windows for ARM. Two people familiar with the deal told XDA that the deal is “Set to expire soon” but no exact date is put for when will the deal expire. 

Apple Silicone based Macs are insanely power and the hardware is absolutely capable to run almost any AAA game title. With the latest integrated GPU in the M1 Max comparing to a RTX 3080 Mobile while still consuming a lot less power.

Only limitation these new machines have is the lack of available titles for macOS. End of the Microsoft Qualcomm deal might mean that Microsoft could allow Apple users to install Windows for ARM using bootcamp. 

Although Apple Silicon Mac don’t offer Boot Camp now, but we can hope that Apple would bring in the feature once Windows on Arm is available to install. Considering the fact that Craig Federighi, Apple’s VP of Software Engineering in November of 2020 said Windows for Arm can natively run-on Apple Silicon, but it is up to Microsoft to let it, we can assume that Apple wont mind bringing back Bootcamp. 

Now there are still some problems left with Running AAA titles on these new machines including the fact that all these games are built for the X86 Architecture and not the ARM architecture. But building an emulation layer for X86 based apps for ARM is absolutely possible as we see with the Rosetta 2 emulation layer on MacOS.

Now gaming using an emulation layer is not the most ideal but if Microsoft could speed things up a little bit and try to get performance as close to native as they could the games would definitely be playable at a reasonable resolution and refresh rate. 

While the deal is still in place apps like CrossOver allow users to run Windows software on Mac. Users can also use Parallels to run an Insider Preview Build on Windows on the M1 series Macs using virtualisation. 

These solutions does not allow users to play every Windows game ever, but running a lot of Windows-only apps and software is possible also allow playing Windows games on Mac. 


GTA VI is still in early development and might not be released until 2025.

It’s been almost a decade since the launch of GTA V and the next version (GTA VI) of the long-running video game series might still be in early production. Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier recently corroborated Tom Henderson who has multiple accurate Battlefield and Call of Duty leaks, Tom posted a YouTube video detailing various rumors and predictions for Rockstar’s highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6.

He claims that GTA VI will be set up on a larger map which will include a modern iteration of Vice City in some capacity. He also claims that this map will keep evolving similar to games such as Fortnite. The game is expected to carry on with multiple playable characters like GTA V and is also rumoured that the top-selling video game series will first time have a female protagonist, she is rumoured to be taking the role of a hacker.

With all of these rumors, Henderson in his video also predicted that the game most likely would be coming in 2024 or 2025. While these were just called predictions by Tom Henderson, Jason Schreier replied to a tweet corroborating the information by Henderson. Schreier tweeted “Idk why everyone thinks that is said GTA VI was coming in 2023. Everything Tom Henderson has said about the game matches up with what I’ve heard”

Schreier had previously estimated a 2023 release window but pointed out that they were his own predictions, and were made “before we entered a pandemic that still hasn’t stopped.”

Schreier and Henderson both have been pretty accurate in the past making the information a lot more believable but it is worth taking these with a pinch of salt until an official announcement from Rockstar Games.
