LucasArts President Says No Mac Games
1:53 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

The hopes of seeing more new Macintosh games from Lucas Arts are dimming fast. In a recent chat at Star Wars Gamer, Simon Jeffery, the President of Lucas Arts, explained that the Macintosh market doesn't "warrant" them to make games for the platform. Games like Obi Wan and Escape from Monkey Island will probably never see the light of day on the Mac. Here's an excerpt from the chat:

PhilosopherDC> Is there ever going to be a Macintosh version of Obi-wan?



Simon_Jeffery> It's extremely unlikely unfortunately. The Macintosh gaming market does not seem to warrant us making games for it.
Although LucasArts may not be developing games for the Mac, its sister publisher, LucasLearning continues to develop edutainment titles for the Mac. Among the titles in development is Super Bombad Racing, a game that lets players race on various tracks throughout the Star Wars galaxy as way-out versions of their favorite character. Super Bombad Racing is due out in the first quarter of 2001.
