MacSoft recently announced they would be publishing numerous titles for Take Two, surprising and delighting the Mac community. Tropico, Fly! 2, Max Payne, Myth III, Civilization III, and Stronghold are promised with more on the way. IMG was recently able to chat with Senior Product Manager Al Schilling (before all of the recent E3 madness) to try and pin down some answers about the many upcoming titles. Here's a clip:
IMG: Who approached who first in this deal; did MacSoft contact Gathering, or vice versa? Or was it instigated by Infogrames/Take Two from the start?Check out the rest of the Q&A for more information on MacSoft's many new titles. Also be sure to stay tuned as more info on Tropico and Fly!

Schilling: We (MacSoft) heard that Take Two was interested in speaking with some Mac publishers regarding some Gathering titles. We were, obviously, very interested in speaking with them and contacted them immediately. At the same time, I think they were attempting to contact us.
IMG: What will be MacSoft's stance towards Carbon/Mac OS X with these new
Schilling: It is our STRONG hope that we will be able to offer Carbonized versions of all of these titles. I would like to make this a guarantee but, this deal is very new and I haven't had a chance to work this out with the various developers. There are still some technical hurdles that could prevent this from happening but, we are working to resolve these.
