More Mac WWII Online Delays
8:53 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The official World War II Online site now has a quick update on the Mac version (which was originally expected to ship yesterday). Faithful IMG readers will know that IMG already reported on this delay back on July 3rd, although now it seems it could be for longer than just a week. Yesterday we reported on some major changes they're looking to incorporate into the title, and it looks like the Mac version will be delayed until these changes can be incorporated before going to duplication. Here's the full update from Cornered Rat:
The Macintosh version of WWII Online will not be available on July 10th and has been delayed pending the addition of some of the major features and fixes as outlined in our recent Development Roadmap. While Mac users may initially annoyed by the news, keep in mind that these changes will save Mac users from potentially having to download a number of large (75+MB) patches. Mac users are sticklers for quality, and so getting this game initially in a more polished state is certainly welcome. This extra time might also give them a chance to optimize the game and hopefully release it with more forgiving memory and system requirements.
Our partners are all lined up waiting for the product. The publisher, distributor and retailers are prepared to make the title available for Macintosh players as soon as we feel we have done all we can to make the release as strong as possible.
We apologize for the delay and will be posting a retail shipping date as soon as possible.

EB still has World War II Online for the Mac available for preorder, though don't put too much stock in their August 1st date. We're sure "it's done when it's done" applies in this case.
