Cevat Yerli makes big video games for Windows PCs and, now consoles. He owns a Mac, but his studio doesn't make games for them. Apple, he said, doesn't try hard to get games.

Crysis 2, the next game from his studio Crytek, is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Not to Mac computers, as is standard for so many big games.


"If Apple would really push then we would probably think about it," he told Kotaku on the topic of bringing Crysis 2 to Mac. "Any time we talk to Apple, they're like 'Yeah we're excited but then they pull back. I just [sense] a lack of enthusiasm about Apple for this.'"

Yerli added that, as far as Crytek is concerned, porting to Mac is "not a priority," in part because the don't have the time to do it.

It would help, it seems, if Apple wanted it. The creator of Macs, iPhones, iPods and iPads is increasingly chest-beating about the games on its portable devices — and with the popularity of gaming on the iPhone to prove it — but on its computers? Not really at all.
