Fate of Mac Tribes 2 In Limbo?
10:06 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story
As the game fell behind in development and its creators began to feel deadline pressure from Sierra, Dynamix's position on a Mac version of their hotly anticipated Tribes 2 has slipped from "yes" to "maybe." They went from putting together Mac builds to debating whether or not to do a Mac version at all in a very short time, a situation that is all too familiar for those who anticipated a Mac version of Half-Life only to see it axed at the last minute.
This backtracking has left many Mac gamers confused as to whether they'd ever be able to join in on the Tribes 2 action. IMG recently contacted Dynamix's Dave Georgeson about the Mac version of Tribes 2. He had this to say about its status:
"I can't answer that. We honestly don't know at this point. I'm not hedging here...I'm giving an honest answer. We won't know until after beta sometime when I have time to look at it. You should not take this as either a yes, no, or maybe. It is simply an "I don't know." "While "I don't know" may not be the most popular or gratifying answer, it is better than a flat out "no." This at least gives Mac gamers a timetable of when to expect a final decision about the fate of the Mac version of this teamplay-based first-person shooter. Tribes 2 is expected to ship for the PC sometime this Fall, but has yet to reach beta; testing is due to begin later this week. While we wait for a final decision, you can discuss whether or not Tribes 2 will ever come out for Mac on our forums.
