    nope, dice wants nothing to do the with the mac, they even cancelled their xbox port which was nearly done.

    With Breakthrough and Call of Duty on the way I could care less. If Dice hates the Macintosh platform, his loss.

    I definitely want BF1942 on Mac, but its just a pipe dream. Thats the only reason I still have a PC laying around.

    Uhh yeah I think I know that having played both. I was referring to having another FPS based on WWII era weapons/vehicles.

    Same. The trailer for that is just amazing. Makes me want to listen to CCR.

    Uhh...from AppleInsider article on 1/15:

    "Development of "Dues Ex 2" and "Battlefield 1942" are rumored to begin shortly if work has not started already. Unfortunately no details on target releases dates were available and Aspyr failed to return inquiries for confirmation or additional information by press time."

    Couldn't care less about the Deus Ex 2 port (crippled by console consideration), but BF1942 is awesome. Hopefully they can clean up the netcode during the process.

    quite possible now, but i emailed aspyr last year and they said they already spoke with dice about it and it wasnt happening, but maybe they changed their mind.

    I had read the same thing. Maybe Dice consented after realizing Aspyr was taking all the risk for a solid potential return.

    actually they should forget about 1942, and just work with them on vietnam.

    Well here's to hoping for the best!

    I'll take BF1942 with the follow up of Vietnam :D thanx!...

    Guess Dice won't be doing a Desert Storm, since Desert Combat (mod) beat them to it and for free!
