Mark DeForest, Widescreen Myst V

NOTE: Mark DeForest, Cyan's Chief Technical Officer, confirmed that Myst V: End of Ages will support widescreen monitors.

Yes, sorta.
There will be an option in Myst5 to switch to wide screen resolutions
(16:10, 16:9, 16:8, etc.) but they won't be in the "recommended list".
The reason is not all video cards and monitors handle wide screen well.
(BTW, you can switch to wide screen windowed mode for non-wide screen

(A remark from the art director: "I only play (Myst5) in wide screen
mode. It's like playing in a movie.")
