Myst Online Mac Port Delayed
8:50 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Fan's of Cyan's classic Myst series may be disappointed to hear that a Mac port of Myst Online is reportedly unsure at the moment. For those unfamiliar with the game, Myst Online is a Massively Multiplayer Online game based on the Myst universe, where players will no longer have to explore the many worlds alone.

The Unofficial Riven home page is reporting that while Cyan is aggressively pursuing a Mac version, they currently lack the funding from publishers to guarantee they will be able to get it.

Here's the full post from Jim Stephenson's fan page:

Cyan has always been a big supporter of the Mac platform, but apparently they haven't received funding yet for a Mac version of URU. Richard Watson at Cyan posted this explanation at the DRC forums in January: "We want a Mac version. We're aggressively pushing for one. But we just don't have the commitments (mainly funding) that we need for it yet, so it isn't a sure thing."
