Upcoming METAL games?

I'm just curious when we can expect to see some? Would it be safe to assume that after a point in the near future all games will use Metal or is their a reason for developers to not?

Anywhere we can find a list of games being developed specifically with said IP up until said point is reached?

I'm eager for some more AAA console quality games. Personally pickins seem a bit slim as of late. Eager to see what these new iPhones can do!

I'm kind of hopeful that something like X-Com will get an update with Metal support but it probably won't.

I've just gotten an iPad Air 2 and would love to know this too - is there a list of recommended apps that'll really show what our new kit can do? Or a list of apps that have been updated to use metal?

NEW RTS - Machines at War 3 - build bases, deploy aircraft, command subs, conquer tanks.

just want to let you in on something. UE3 (which runs Xcom and a plethora of iOS games) does not support Metal. But, UE4 does and to see UE4 and Metal in action, download Zen Garden from the AppStore.

@Hardbattle, Asphalt 8 uses Metal as does Plunder Pirates, both good games you could try.

Thanks for the suggestions guys - I'll download a few and see what I think. Maybe a thread sticky with a list would be a good idea... No idea how to do that mind

So,it's really the Metal stuff kicking in @Battle Supremacy?

I was wondering how much better it looks now on Air 2 (compared to my Mini Retina).Not that it was an ugly game before but now it has a beautiful smooth framerate and a lot of new (smoke,fire,particle) FX.

Two other Metal games i recommend:

„Defenders“ von NIVAL, INC.

„Beach Buggy Racing“ von Vector Unit
