Blizzard on Boot Camp, Future Mac OS X Dev
8:14 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

Blizzard Entertainment has updated its World of Warcraft and general game FAQs to make clear its current and future support for cross platform versions of its game products. This is a bit of good news for those feeling uncertain about the future of Mac gaming after Apple's recent release of Boot Camp, software which makes Windows XP a viable dual boot option on Intel Macs.

Apple's OS X Boot Camp software lets me boot Windows XP on my Intel-based Mac. Can I run Blizzard games under Windows using Boot Camp on these systems?

Yes, you can if you wish to do so. However, please note that as OS X Boot Camp is in beta form, we can't offer technical support for Blizzard games run under Windows using Boot Camp at this time.

What is Blizzard's plan for native Mac OS support, now that Boot Camp is available?

We have a recognized track record of native Mac OS support, and we have no plans to break with that tradition. We understand that our Mac player base prefers native software whenever possible, and our cross-platform development practice addresses that.

You can check out the new FAQs at the web pages listed below.
