Aspyr's September newsletter offers a status update on the eagerly awatied Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, revealing the likelihood of a release date close to that for the PC version. The Sims Pet Stories, the latest in Aspyr's laptop friendly Sims series, is on track to ship this month. Finally, the newsletter also hints that Neverwinter Nights 2, and an unnamed title, may well be on shelves by Christmas.

Aspyr Studios has wrapped up all our work on the latest Sims Stories game for Mac, The Sims Pet Stories. This is the second game Aspyr has developed internally for Electronic Arts, and we're pleased to be able to bring it to the Mac. Pet Stories retains the laptop-friendly features of Life Stories, making it a good match for Apple's MacBooks and MacBook Pro's. Pet Stories Mac should be available in September.

As Quake Wars gets closer to final on the PC, we've continued to ramp up our development efforts on the Mac side. We're working closing with Apple, ATI, and nVidia to ensure the game runs as smoothly as possible on the Mac. The major work remaining is optimization and cleaning up bugs. If all goes well, Quake Wars for Mac should be ready to ship close to the PC release, so Mac gamers will be able to join in the multiplayer fun with their PC friends.

Aspyr Studios has begun work on two very large OS X games that are sure to be hits with Mac gamers. One is a genre that has never been on the Mac before, and the other is a more familiar game type based on a very popular brand. If all goes well, both of these games will be on shelves for Christmas
