Further to the news that Postal 2 has gone gold, prolific programmer and all-around coding wizard Ryan Gordon has left clues in his latest .plan update that Electronic Arts' upcoming World War II sequel, Medal Of Honor: Pacific Assault, may be coming to the Mac.
Gordon, Epic Games' Mac OS & Linux specialist, has been responsible for porting the last two versions of the popular first person online shooter Unreal Tournament, as well as many of the most recent Unreal-engine based shooters, including America's Army.
In his update, Gordon notes that he has started work on the Linux port of the game:
Linux dedicated server work starts. In relation to AA, Spearhead, and Breakthough, the codebase is...well, unrecognizable. They changed a LOT of code. We'll see how this goes. Should-be-easy projects that turn out to be a lot of work is becoming a recurring theme in my life recently.While his comments by no means represent an official announcement that the game will be coming to the Mac, the popularity of the original title and its two existing expansion packs, Medal Of Honor Allied Assault: Spearhead and Medal Of Honor Allied Assault: Breakthrough, coupled with the continuing strong relationship between PC game publishing giants Electronic Arts and Mac gaming specialists Aspyr Media, would leave one to believe that a Mac port of the franchise's next installment is within the realm of possibilities.
The PC version of Pacific Assault, currently being completed at EA's Los Angeles studio, is expected to ship in early November. Stay tuned to IMG as we try to unearth more news regarding this new title.
