Several Phoronix readers have been writing in with word via a video recording that War Thunder is coming to Linux. War Thunder is an online multiplayer combat game that's currently in open beta for all major (non-Linux) platforms.

War Thunder contains aircraft, vehicles, and ships from the pre-World War 2 era to the Korean war and maps are largely based upon real battles in the past. War Thunder so far in its open beta period has been a highly praised online combat game and now it looks like it's coming over to Linux, per the YouTube video embedded below.
