New Possibilities for RTCW: Enemy Territory
7:52 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Nearly a year ago, Activision announced they were canceling commercial development of a standalone expansion for the popular shooter Return to Castle Wolfenstein and would instead give it away for free for PC users. Unfortunately, because the game wasn't created as a standard modification to Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Mac users were left in the cold.

Now it seems with Activision's release of some of the game's source, developments in the Wolfenstein community may be conspiring to help get Mac fans back on track. A recent news update at the Urban Terror website--a modification for Quake 3--notes its developers are currently porting the mod to Enemy Territory and may attempt bring the Mac users with it:

We do understand there is some frustration that has echoed through the Mac community as Enemy Territory was not created with QVM, like Urban Terror, that allows the mod to be played on Macs. We are currently looking into the possibility of continuing our support for the Mac platform, as of right now no official decision has been reached.
In other news, the creator of another Wolfenstein modification called banimod has announced he is also attempting to get the rights to port Enemy Territory to the Mac as well. Here's the quick update from "bani" on the subject:
I'm talking with my contacts at Activision about getting a Mac port of ET done. ID/Activision would like to see a Mac ET, so it's just a matter of connecting the right people -- which I'm attempting to do.
Mac Wolfenstein fans should keep a sharp eye out, as we'll post any new developments here as they occur.
