Blizzard's Diablo III On Linux?
In a recent gaming interview, Blizzard's director of the forthcoming Diablo III game was asked about a Linux client.
Diablo III is set to be released this month as the latest in the Diablo series of dark fantasy action role-playing games. Diablo III is being powered by an in-house Blizzard engine and will have native support for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.
In an interview with Jay Wilson, the Diablo III director, Aus gamers asked him about the possibility of a Linux client. Valve's Steam/Source on Linux was also cited.
AusGamers: One of the... I don’t want to use the word competitor, but one of the other larger PC teams out there, Valve and Steam, has recently announced that a bunch of their games are going to be available on Linux finally. Have you guys... is that something you’ve even thought about? Because I know there are variable levels of Linux and it’s quite complicated to take an established product and port it over to the varying levels of that OS. Is that something on the cards? Is it something you’ve ever thought about? Or is it strictly a “You know what? We’re just going to stick with the platforms we’ve got”?So don't look for a native Linux client of Diablo III at this point. However, at least it should work under WINE.
