UT3 Linux Is "Slowly Being Worked On"
Phoronix: UT3 Linux Is "Slowly Being Worked On"
Unreal Tournament 3 was released for the PC nearly two years ago, and there was the promise of a Linux client and it was being worked on by Ryan Gordon, but to this day there is still no such client. Back in March it was said that it was still undergoing work, but there was no ETA for its completion...
Well, we need something new to make fun of now that DNF is officially dead
It's not officially dead, though... It's resting...or is that pining for the Fjords?

Heh... That'd be my take on that one. It's not quite time yet, but I'm thinking it's nearly time to go looking for loose change on that one.

Should not be this difficult. Clearly something else is going on that they're not telling us. But whatever. Not quite dead yet is still better than six feet under. I'll still buy it if it comes out, but every day that passes diminishes how much I'm willing to pay for it.
I think it's to late to buy this game. If it comes out today, I wouldn't buy it anymore. Why should I buy a two year old game? Mr. Gorden could spend his time for other projects now.
Sorry Epic, to late is to late.
If Epic were serious about releasing it, it would have been released by now. Any comments from Epic these days are basically a joke.
We've moved on. The Linux community has already written it off as a failure to release, and due to broken promise after broken promise after vague/useless "update", will continue to treat it as such even in the off-chance an installer materializes.
Cut your losses and develop your next game with the lessons learned from the failure that was UT3/linux.
