NCSoft has released several new screenshots for their upcoming MMORPG sequel Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle. As for whether or not we will be seeing this title for the Mac in the near future, the evidence is not yet solid. NCSoft has explained in the past that their current experience with the Mac will help them formulate a plan for the future.

The Lineage II FAQ covers this, mentioning that because there is yet no official port of the base technology for the title, the next-gen Unreal engine, it's difficult to talk of a Mac version of Lineage II :

Q: Do you plan to develop Lineage II for Macintosh Computers?

- Since Lineage II is currently using unreal warfare engine we do not have any plan to develop a Mac version client at this time.

Assuming a Mac porting house was commissioned to port a new Unreal game (such as Unreal 2 or Unreal Tournament 2003), it could be very possible to again bring title like Lineage II to the Mac. Should there be any change in this policy, you can be sure IMG will cover it.
