I personally do not think there are millions of gamers on MAC hence Developers do not usually support that platform.
Issue with releasing games on multiple platforms (PS, Xbox and PC) is keeping them refined: a simple update has to be done 3 times but
on one of those platforms it might no longer be simple, hence some games have platform specific bugs. Adding another platform means that
a lot of resources have to go into porting it over as well as maintaining it. And as MAC gaming community isn't really big it's not worth it.
You can though use
Benchmark and run Vampyr through that. MAC's are more, in my and many others eyes, more of a work platform than
they are a gaming platform.
Hopefully you see where I am coming from, I honestly doubt there will be a MAC Release, but I could be wrong!

Here are the minimum specs as per the Vampyr Steam page:
I believe you will be able to play Vampyr but possibly not with 60fps stable-- it won't hurt to try the game out. As long as you do not play more than two hours you can get a refund!
Personally I believe that their main goal was to bring a realistic feel to London with a really good narrative of a fictional story. Adding gore, limbs flying around and such can really destroy that immersion.
I am fan of Witcher myself but being honest with you, I sometimes loose the 'feel' when I split the guy in half for the 100th time. In my opinion it's not worth the resources to create gore.
In addition, it can also create issues with being banned in other countries because they are too 'sensitive.' Obviously none of these are official statements by the Developers anywhere, it's just my 2 cents on the issue
I've not read nor heard anywhere where that they got their inspiration from the tabletop RPG games you mentioned.
Though I wouldn't be surprised if they have-- obviously a lot of research has gone into the game to make it an authentic London feel (AKA one of their teams going around London!), a somewhat flowing timeline with our known history therefore I would assume they have done more than required amount of work in researching Vampire and Gothic themed games ranging from tabletop to virtual games.
TL;DR - They probably did research on those games but never (as far as I can recall) officially stated it
Same as with games like Fable, I will probably be the nicest the first time around. Wanna help people and stuff, get into the lore. Preordering this week.
I'm exactly same as you - my playthrough is mostly sympathetic and nice and replays are always opposite. With games such as Detroit: Become Human it was near impossible to do a mean walkthrough,
Within the Developer playthrough you can see how Jonathans face has became more 'evil' during the cutscene where he fails to save a patient, that is due the fact they showcased how evil you can actually be.
