WW2Online OS X Plans
2:48 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

An alert reader pointed us to a new production notes section of the World War II Online forums which gives a lengthy list of things they are currently working on for this massively-multiplayer online game. Included in the middle of an extensive list is a new bit of information about their work with an OS X version of the game. This line provides the clue:

Couple of little name conflict fixes for OS X (our 4th platform!)
While Cornered Rat has noted in the past they were hoping to support OS X, this is great to see they are on the ball already. We went to Russell "Hoss" Mirabelli, one of their main Mac programmers, to ask for any other information about the OS X version. With the Mac retail box due to ship out sometime next month, we wanted to know if it might include an OS X copy as well. Here's what Hoss had to say:
It has only just become a target platform recently. It's unlikely that
it will ship with OSX in the box, it should be available relatively soon
after release. It's too early to tell about performance.
So, while they may not be able to hit the target for the retail version, it's still great to hear they are going to be supporting OS X eventually. This massively multiplayer online war simulation is getting more stable on the PC side, and though the Mac version has been delayed, we're still optimistic about a release in the near future, perhaps in mid-August.
