Not too likely.  Everyone I hear talking about the engine is just bashing it.  It can't handle outdoor environments that well, and I guess it's just not that overly impressive.

The new Quake or Unreal engines will most likely be the preferred choice over Doom3.

The new Quake engine *is* the Doom3 engine.  Enhanced with a nifty terrain feature, "megapixel" or something like that.  Anyone who bashes the Doom3 engine is just uninformed.  However, the Unreal3 engine does seem rather more impressive generally.

Rome : Total War

I saw Medieval: Total War on sale for five bucks the other day - and that's in Australian dollars. Almost makes me wish I had $500 to build a low-end PC.
Why are you looking at my Macintosh?

Isn't that the Crappy sub-sim the people over at your forum play?

I'd like to see another good FPS sci-fi based game that didn't involve squad based
tactics (kind of having seconds thoughts about any interest in SW Republic Commando).

Something along the lines of a System Shock 3 would be nice (Bioshock maybe since
they're using the UT engine).

Frankly, there's not a whole lot out there on the PC front that really interests
me now. Maybe I'll go back and start playing Descent 3.

And apparently, the AI is brilliant (as far as FPS games go). I've heard nothing but gushing praise about this game.

Here's the metacritic page for Far Cry (89% rating):

When you add up everything that Far Cry has to offer, it easily amounts to one of the best games ever released.

I just thought of another game I would like to see ported... Hellgate:London. A FPS from the people who used to work at Blizzard. (could be with Blizzard's excellent Mac record that they are already porting it... but until it is confirmed....)

If anyone can remember playing Diablo... this is the team that created it. And the one selling feature that wins me over with Hellgate:London, is that it is a FPS with randomly generated levels (just like Diablo!). Talk about sweet!

Hard to say at this point.. just dug this interview up...

Quote

Q:There has been some talk about the 3d engine. Is it easier to buy a license from another company such as the Havoc engine from Valve, or Doom 3 from ID? Or, better put, wouldn't it be easier to take a 3d engine that is out there, customize it, and save a lot of time in the production of an in-house 3d engine?

Bill Roper:The amount of time to modify an engine to do specifically what you need a game to do can very well take as long as designing the engine yourself. There are numerous examples of games that have continued to slip in regards to release dates because they keep switching technology. The engines that have been developed by companies like Id and Valve are certainly impressive, but at this time we feel that the specific needs of the game we are creating are best served by the creation of our own technology.

Q:Linux is steadily gaining widespread acceptance as an alternative Operating System. In earlier interviews, Bill Roper has mentioned that the focus of Flagship initial game will be for personal computers. Has Flagship thought to develop "the game" for Linux and/or the Mac OS X operating systems?

Bill Roper: We are currently focusing all of our energies on creating a great game for the PC and have not yet discussed our long-range plans for support on the Macintosh or other operating systems. We do come from a tradition of supporting the Mac with our games, and we will certainly be keeping such a great, passionate base of gamers in our thoughts as our development progresses.
