French video game publisher Infogrames announced Thursday it would sell its MacSoft unit, which produces games for Apple Computer's Macintosh operating system. Privately held Destineer, a new Minneapolis-based publisher specializing in Mac games, will acquire the division for an undisclosed sum. MacSoft produced Mac versions of popular PC titles, including content from Infogrames and games licensed from other publishers.
"We are focusing our attention on our biggest growth areas: PC and video games," said Paul Rinde, senior vice president at Infogrames. "Destineer's excellent track record in publishing Macintosh games makes it an ideal company to publish current and future Infogrames titles for Macintosh systems."
