    I have to agree. Thanks for coughing up the money Blizzard.

    Now where's my StarCraft 2?

    Gr8 news!

    I wonder if the older titles will could now be released for the Mac, like Half Life 2 and MOH Pacific Assault.

    I wonder if Blizzard would want to work on them. Obviously, the should want to get a return on their huge investment.

    Havok has always been available for Mac. The problem was, that no Mac game maker could afford the horrendous price. And that fact hasn't changed. Blizzard just has the cash to afford it. Obviously they are planning on releasing something big (I'm betting on Diablo 3 or SC2), which will guarantee them big revenue.

    Don't fret

    No Starcraft 2 or Warcraft 4 in the future, the Havoc engine will be used in the upcoming SC:Ghost FPS.

    Yay, another fps!

    :(

    ps: Tremulous ROCKS and it's GPL!

    What makes you say that? SC:Ghost is long dead.

    Havok is not only for FPS. E.g. Age of Empires III uses it as well.

    I doubt Valve would release the code neccessary for Blizzard to port HL2 to Mac. Gutted.

    they dropped Ghost a long long time ago.

    since WC has netted Blizz billions by now, id assume they will stick with what they know best and keep RTS games and the ilk, coming.

    or at least something WC related, if not SC2 finally.
