Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Cancels Linux and Mac Versions of the Game

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been highly anticipated ever since it was announced from the famed game developer Koji Igarashi, producer of the original Castlevania series. The game has been in development for quite some time now, but it seems that this will be the year that the game will finally be released.

However, the official word is out from IGA, Mac, and Linux versions of the game have been canceled. The sad news comes from the Kickstarter page, where IGA explains that it was a tough decision, but due to challenges of supporting middleware and online features, the team canceled these two versions of the game.

Merry Christmas. IGA here.

This year is coming closer to an end…

In this update, we have a very important announcement to make.  Bloodstained will no longer be supported on Mac and Linux. We have made this tough decision due to challenges of supporting middleware and online feature support and making sure we deliver on the rest of the scope for the game. We will be offering backers who planned to play the game on Mac and Linux the option to change the platform of their order. If you would like to change your platform, please send an email with your new platform request from the email address associated with your Kickstarter pledge. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and we hope for your understanding.

Development has reached its peak — we are currently checking the performance of Bloodstained on each platform. Overall, we are done with enemy placement and entering the adjustment phase. But there are still many progression-blocking bugs that must be taken care of.


Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is scheduled to release sometime in 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Are you hyped for Iga’s upcoming title? Let us know in the comments below!
