    I would be interested in hearing from Blair at Aspyr if they are aware of this petition and have agreed to it as the petition's creator claims in the post linked above.

    In any case, signing a petition for a good cause is harmless enough until they want my home mailing address and phone number. That's not happening.

    I'd rather have them spent their time porting more worthwhile games instead of the annual CoD rehash.

    Interesting. What games do you consider more 'worthwhile' than CodBlops2?

    I really am curious. Of course this is all subjective.

    Me personally, I wish that Mac porting houses like Aspyr would spend some time porting AAA MMOs like SWTOR to OSX.

    i guess you not into fps doesn't mean COD are not worth it, ask any member here who are fps players how COD is in gameplay, when it comes to first person shooter nothing can touch call of duty series hand down. :cool:

    Counter Strike would like to have a word with you.

    Frankly, I'd also think that porting a two year old Call of Duty game would be a waste of time. If they're going to do CoD, they may as well focus on Advanced Warfare.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order for instance. Or Shadow Warrior. Far Cry 3. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! (which is actually coming). Or why the heck not Titanfall?

    And if we go beyond first-person shooters, Dark Souls. South Park: The Stick of Truth. Valiant Hearts. Company of Heroes 2. Dishonored. Or even though I'm not into Bethesda's RPGs, Fallout 3 and/or Skyrim would also important games to port. There are tons of games far more interesting than any recent CoD.

    See above and tell me once more I'm not into fps.

    You make many excellent suggestions above in my opinion but in fairness, Call of Duty is a hugely popular series of FPS games and since many people do like them their personal requests and priorities have as much merit as anyone else's.

    If the game in question was something obscure, I could better understand seeing it as a low priority compared to others but that is not the case here.

    ----------

    I would disagree there as some people really enjoy the single player game in each of these too along with the multiplayer. With their popularity they have enough staying power to still be worthwhile purchases well after release even if they are not the most current iteration.

    I just checked Steam stats (5:35 EST US) so not prime time and found the following:

    Call of Duty Black Ops II multiplayer has 5,701 players currently and is number thirty on the top 100 list at the moment. (peak 8,853)

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer has 3,731 players currently (peak 6,328)

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer has 2,755 players currently (peak 4,408)

    Granted, the above numbers are dwarfed by the big hits CS: Global Offensive, TF2, etc. but there's no shortage of people to play with. Interestingly, COD Ghosts came in behind both Black Ops II and MW3 in online players. So much for a newer title having more players. Ghosts had 3,540 (peak 4,110)

    Multiplayer aside though, again I wouldn't discount the appeal of the COD single player experience to many as well.

    HAHAHAHA...I just now looked at the petition. No, none of our companies agreed to do anything based on the petition. Gotta love the dude's tenacity tho :)

    We'd love to see BLOPS II on the Mac too...anything is possible! Truth be told however, we are buried in some new exciting stuff right now ;)

    Oooooo... new and exiting stuff... You tease!!!

    But yeah, I hope you will get around to Black Ops II in time. A friend of mine told me the single player is awesome in the game and my nephew raves about the multiplayer.
