MacWorld UK Interviews Peter Tamte
9:54 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Peter Tamte, president of Destineer Studios and its Mac-game publishing sister company Bold is the subject of a MacWorld UK interview posted early Wednesday.

The article touches on a number of interesting subjects, inlcuding Tamte's views on the recent highly-publicised "rift" between Apple and Microsoft:

“I’m not aware of any rift between Microsoft and Apple. I interact with Microsoft’s games unit, and I’ve seen no shred of evidence that says they’re at all worried about competition with Apple. The games unit’s committed to becoming a multi platform company.”
Tamte also comments on some of the games currently being ported for Bold:
“Halo for the Mac will be released in summer 2003 simultaneously with the PC release, and will very much be a multiplayer thing. PC and Mac users will be able to play Halo online against each other. It’s unclear yet whether it will be possible to play against Xbox users, because the Xbox uses a different set of controls.”
Tamte went on to confirm that the Bungie team responsible for Halo is now working on Halo 2, and discussed the way the game is being ported: “Westlake is doing the Mac port. The company is working with the PC code produced by Gearbox for the PC port of the title”.
