Apple Highlights MacSoft
9:13 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new Apple article gives an overview of Mac publisher MacSoft and the company's large number of upcoming titles (which increased tremendously to their huge deal with Take Two/Gathering of Developers). The article notes that top on their list of carbonized titles are Tropico and Fly! II, both due out this summer. It also contains this clip about another surprising announcement, Max Payne:

Following close behind those releases will be the “dark” Max Payne, a third-person perspective game set on the streets of New York City. Max is an undercover cop framed for a murder he didn’t commit and on the run from both the police and the mob. Your goal is to solve the mystery and clear Max’s name.
We're curious just how soon "close behind" actually is, as Max Payne has been in development for nearly four years and seems like quite a large title to port. As of now, the party responsible for porting the game has not been named.


Head over and have a read through the rest of the piece for tidbits on Myth III, Stronghold, Master of Orion III, and Civilization III. We'll keep you updates on MacSoft's many titles as they (respectively) head towards release; at the very least Tropico is expected to ship at Macworld New York the third week of July.
