While it was speculated it would come to Linux as a key developer stated internally they were running the game on Linux, Wargame: European Escalation has now been officially announced for Linux. The game is currently undergoing closed beta testing on Linux before its official Steam debut.

Wargame: European Escalation is a real-time strategy game that was released last year for Windows and Mac OS X operating systems and its story is set in Europe during the Cold War. This game is powered by RUSE's IRISZOOM game engine. Wargame: European Escalation was developed by Eugen Systems and is distributed digitally via Steam.

On Thursday it was confirmed via a forum post on the game's web-site that the game will indeed see an official Linux release. "Wargame will soon be released on LINUX...Starting from tomorrow, we're launching a beta-test of the LINUX version."

No release date for Wargame: European Escalation on Linux has yet to be decided, but seeing as it's now in closed testing and the game was already being run (and developed) internally while on Linux, the public release is likely not too far out.
