Infogrames Jettisons MacSoft Division

Infogrames has sold its Macintosh publishing division, MacSoft, to Destineer, a privately held game developer and publisher.
As such, MacSoft has come full circle: MacSoft was started in 1993 by Peter Tamte, who is Destineer's president. Under the terms of the deal, Destineer has acquired all rights to the MacSoft brand and all MacSoft-branded existing products and products under development, as well as first rights to publish Macintosh versions of future Infogrames' products. The majority of Infogrames' MacSoft employees will join Destineer immediately. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. "We are focusing our attention on our biggest growth areas: PC and video games," said Paul Rinde, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Infogrames' Minneapolis studio, which included the MacSoft label. Infogrames acquired MacSoft as a part of the Minneapolis-based The WizardWorks Group in 1999.
