6:00 AM | Tristram Perry | Comment on this story
Despite its non-release this past summer and Playnet's fiscal demise, on a recent UnknownPlayer.com chat session, World War II Online developers Cornered Rat Software revealed a glimmer of hope about the massively multiplayer online game's possible release for the Mac platform.
When asked if the the Mac version of WWII Online was officially dead, producer Chris "Mo" Sherland replied:
No. We are looking for a publishing deal. Our launch made some folks shy, but the stability is there now. Mac version works on OS X and is at full parity with the PC version. It's just a matter of striking a deal.The release of the Mac OS 9 version was originally scheduled to ship the same time as the PC game did, but it never materialized due to technical reasons. Last december IMG reported that Playnet filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
