Combat Mission 2 For Mac Confirmed
6:54 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

In a forum post Martin van Balkom, Marketing Guru for Battlefront.com, confirmed that Combat Mission 2 will be coming to the Mac. CM 2 will feature an all new graphics engine and, unlike its World War II tactical wargame predecessor, will be set in the era of modern warfare.

Balkom also mentioned previous experiences with Apple which led to a reluctance to announce a Mac version too early.

One of the main reasons to create a totally new engine is to make it compatible again with whatever Apple has cooked up by then. The reason why we don't want to promise a Mac version right away is that Apple has been cooking a lot - again - recently, and we don't want to be locked into something that we can't get out of. This would be a repeat of what happened with CMx1, as Apple made an about-turn on their 3D compatibility without bothering to tell us, a registered Mac developer (and one of many who found themselves with their pants down back then... being one of the smallest out there, however, it affected us more than others).

So in short - yes, there will be a Mac version.
