Almost two years after its original release on consoles, Windows PCs, and mobile devices, Activision's megapopular shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops is headed to the Mac.

Call of Duty: Black Ops hitting the Mac is big news for Aspyr. Company executive vice president Ted Staloch said the launch of Black Ops represents the "biggest" software debut in the firms' 17-year history.

Players who pick up the Mac version of Black Ops will also be able to purchase the game's four downloadable content add-ons. The First Strike, Escalation, Annihilation, and Rezurrection packs will be made available "later this year." More details will be announced "soon," Aspyr said.

Aspyr has published a host of Call of Duty games for the Mac, including Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty 2, and the original Call of Duty. Call of Duty: Black Ops is the best-selling entry in the shooter series to date, moving more than 25 million copies as of August 2011.
