Sony Online Entertainment and TransGaming have announced that Free Realms for the Macintosh platform is currently in development. Scheduled to release later this fall, Free Realms for Mac will allow users to play together in the family-friendly online world with the over 14 million existing registered players on the PC.

“There is no denying the overwhelming player demand for Free Realms on the Mac platform, of which we plan to deliver very soon,” said John Smedley, president of SOE. “For the first time ever, SOE is developing synchronous gameplay for Mac and PC players and we are thrilled to tap into TransGaming’s Mac development expertise to bring this functionality to fruition.”
