Update on Mac Baldur's Gate II, Giants
3:06 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Many IMG readers have been wondering about Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, which was declared "gold" over a month ago but has yet to appear on store shelves. Responding to our request, Andrew Hoolan of MacPlay has given us an update on the status of this Bioware RPG.
According to Andrew this game was sidetracked by non-technical issues, and is currently in duplication. It should hit store shelves about the same time as Aliens vs Predator -- the end of this month. As to what the issues behind the delay were, he did not specify; some have speculated that the delays were do to the reorganizations taking place at Interplay, but we have no firm proof of that possibility.
Hoolan also passed along the news that the Mac OS X-only port Giants: Citizen Kabuto is very close to going "gold." This much-anticipated release will be a test case for OS X-only titles, and another demonstration of Omni Development's mastery of the Cocoa API.
Our thanks to MacPlay for the update, and we look forward to seeing BG2 on shelves at the end of September. Remember, both titles can be pre-ordered through IMG's web store.
