Star Wars: The Old Republic Mac Version In Consideration
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

In a recent interview with Massively/Joystiq, BioWare's Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk revealed that the company is considering bringing its recently released MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic to the Mac platform. The story driven MMO lets players choose to take roles as a variety of Star Wars themed classes including Jedi and Sith.

"We know there's a big Mac audience of BioWare fans ... we know that's an important and large audience. And we want to serve that audience," Muzyka told me when asked about a potential Mac version of the his company's latest major release, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

"I'd say 'not yet,'" Zeschuk assured me when I told him that, as a BioWare fan, I'm unable to play The Old Republic on my less than two-year-old MacBook. Though Muzyka was quick to remind me that I can technically play the game on a Windows partition, he also admitted that it wasn't an ideal situation. "We've done a lot of Mac ports before of our games. We haven't announced any details yet for The Old Republic, but we know that's an important and large audience."

Neither would offer a strict timetable on the Mac version, but Zeschuk did note, "That's definitely one of the things we're looking at next. We want to get this launch under our belt and everything stabilized and happy, and then we'll look at other platforms, and that's obviously one of the first ones."
