Fox Signs Publisher, Still No Mac Info
10:16 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

As you've probably heard, Fox Interactive has finally found a partner to publish their games. The company is called Vivendi Universal and is a monster publishing house with huge companies such as Sierra and Blizzard under its belt.

The press release mentions a number of new titles that Fox and Sierra will publish together, such as a sequel to No One Lives Forever, a new Die Hard series, and Aliens versus Predator 2. Many Mac gamers are probably wondering where this leaves the original Aliens versus Predator for Mac. It is believed the title is completed and just got lost in the shuffle as Fox looked for a publisher. Since no mention of Mac AvP is made in the PR, we've tried to make contact with Fox and get a statement.

While it looks fairly grim, the situation really hasn't changed much at all. At this point, there is still no announced publisher for the Mac version of the game. Reading through the fine print of the press release, previous titles developed by Fox are not mentioned, so the odds are good that any agreement regarding the Mac version of AvP may be totally unaffected by this change. We'll bring you any new information we might receive or be able to dig up.
