    Today while browsing around the CodeWeavers site I came across the 2008 CrossOver roadmap that was posted by Jeremy White the CEO of CodeWeavers. About three paragraphs into the roadmap Jeremy reveals that they plan to release a gaming product in the next couple weeks, called CrossOver Games.

    In the next few weeks we are going to launch a new product called 'CrossOver Games'. CrossOver Games is an entry level product that lets you play a broad range of games, particularly games with a lot of replayability such as MMOs like World of Warcraft and the range of games from Valve (e.g. Team Fortress 2, CSS, and so on). CrossOver Games will be available for free to any of our CrossOver Mac or Linux Professional customers. The idea is that we will rev CrossOver Games more quickly than regular CrossOver, so as to better take advantage of all of the great work being done on Wine with respect to games. The regular CrossOver will continue on a more stable and reliable pace. We're doing this in part to try to generate some buzz and interest; we feel like Rodney Dangerfield when it comes to games - we'd like to earn some respect. We feel strongly that CrossOver will be the finest way to run games on a Linux or Mac system, and we want to shout that from the rooftops!


    WoW! it looks as if the folks at TransGaming are in for a little competition for Linux and Mac gamers. And the best thing is if your a current CrossOver customer you get a free copy of CrossOVer Games!

    Jeremy also talks about the upcoming release of CrossOver 7 and what changes are in store for it's release.

    I don't understand why he bothers mentioning World of Warcraft, seeing as it already is Universal Binary.

    For Mac yes, but not Linux. I'm sure it was mentioned for the linux customers.

    Even though I haven't actually used crossover, i've heard relatively good things about it... and being that i've seen the horrendous performance of transgaming's battlefield 2142 port on both of my intel macs, they've already got a lot more respect from me than transgaming does.
