E3: IMG Report on Summoner, Red Faction
1:26 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
After speaking with a representative from publisher THQ, IMG was able to obtain updates on
the status of the Mac versions of Volition games Summoner and Red Faction. Both titles will be published by GraphSim upon completion, and whether you favor RPGs or fancy FPS, either title provides an ample dose of eye candy and action.
The Mac OS port of Summoner is almost complete, and Volition is hoping to reach Gold Master
status shortly for a release within the next few weeks. However Red Faction fans will have to
wait slightly longer than expected to get their hands on the Mac version; THQ stated that the
Mac version of Red Faction will begin development immediately after the PC
version is complete, rather than simultaneously. Volition hopes to release the PC version in August.
Indications are that it will not take long for the port; Red Faction already
is cross-platform in design and Volition has plenty of Mac experience from
developing Summoner for Mac.
