MWNY: Report on Destineer
1:21 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
IMG just met with Peter Tamte of Destineer on the show floor, and we have news for you about this company and their aggressive moves to cement a place in the suddenly crowded Mac publishing market.
According to Tamte, Destineer isn't just working on Mac ports -- they have an original title in development, with an eye-popping engine that will showcase the GeForce 3 for both Mac and PC. No other details were given; he did confirm that the engine they will be using is not the Halo engine.
When asked about Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 Peter said that it's the "most complicated
port ever" since it involves legacy code from years and years ago. At this
point there's nothing new to report on except that it is still happening.
Tamte also confirmed that Destineer/Bold has exclusive rights to ALL Microsoft titles, past and future, so they will become our primary channel for MS game releases.
IMG also asked Tamte about Halo; he didn't have much to offer except a promise that this title would be coming to Mac OS as well as to PC after the Xbox release. He would not say if the Mac label Bold would be publishing.
