There are hints that it might come. But it'll probably be some time until we know for sure.

Well after Rome's success, I think Feral will do more TW games, but they might think it makes more sense to do "Medieval 2" first, just because it'll run fine on so many more recent Macs, so logically should sell much more.

As both "Empire" & "Napoleon" are more graphically intensive & really need the most modern Macs to run at maximum settings, I think they'll do those later. Ultimately though, I'd like to see all of them make it to Mac!

I think EmpireTW would be the best for now since its system requirements(PC) is not very high and it was released for PC in 2009. This one would be more competitive.

Empire/Napoleon TW as full price title, Medieval 2 TW as Feral Legend, and everyone's happy. :D

Honestly, from everything I've heard, I'd rather they skip Medieval 2 and Empire and go directly to Shogun 2, which sounds pretty amazing. (A good battle AI!)

Chopin is definitely Empire Total War. The Chopin image is cropped from this sea battle. Specifically, it's of the water line of the bow of the ship on the right. In the Chopin image, note the crest of the wave half way down the image, the red tinge at the top (blood) and the almost vertical shadow on the water at the left, not to mention the large number of cannons protruding from a wooden hull!

It would be nice if this were a port of the Empire & Napoleon Total War - Game of the Year Edition but unfortunately the image does not allow us to determine that one way or the other. Here's hoping though!

Good luck with the port Feral; this is a definite purchase from me!

Nice one! That link looks spot on.

Re doing a GOTY edition: bearing in mind that Feral are a relatively small company, usually working on a few games simultaneously, for a very limited Mac gaming market when compared to PC, IMO, if they release only Empire next, it'd still be excellent. It also probably makes more sense from a financial perspective to do Napoleon later.

Hopefully, they'll also do Medieval 2 on their legends label sometime in the near future. The Mac platform can only benefit from all these AAA games being released as I imagine there are still plenty of dedicated Mac OS X-only gamers out there.

I already suspected this, but this is a spot-on confirmation. Nice find. :thumbsup:
