MW: MacSoft to Bring Rogue Spear, Tons More
1:20 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG just met with MacSoft in their limo at the expo (see related story) and wow, did they have a tale to tell. Not only is Rogue Spear, the sequel to strategy/shooter Rainbow six, in development, but there are dozens more titles on the way.

Besides Rogue Spear (which will include the expansion pack Urban Operations) due this Christmas, MacSoft is bringing the critically acclaimed Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption, a unique 3rd-person gothic adventure, to the Mac OS. Also coming are Beach Head 2000, a revamp of a classic Apple II/C64 title, Driver (now due this Fall) and Links LS 2000, due in September. Worms: Armageddon is still on track as well, for late Fall.

MacSoft shipped the long-awaited Asteroids at the show, a 3D revamp of the classic Atari game. They also announced a HUGE partnership with Hasbro Interactive, which will bring dozens of titles to the Mac OS. The other Atari retreads - Centipede, Pong and Breakout - will also be coming to the Mac OS, along with many consumer offerings such as Risk II, Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune.

There are also a host of edutainment titles on the way: Mac Kid's Pack, Mac Tonka Truck Pack, and more. MacSoft has got a veritable flood of titles due for the Christmas season, that's for sure.

We weren't able to pry the information from them as to who is doing the Mac ports of these titles, but we are fairly certain we can pin a name to at least three, perhaps four of the secret projects from Westlake Interactive's projects page as of today. We'll see if we can fill in more of those blanks as the day progresses.
