Bandits: Phoenix Rising, a unique racing game that was released for Windows back in 2003, is finally getting closer to being released on Linux. Linux Game Publishing began work on porting this title to Linux in January of 2007 and up to February of 2008 they had only issued two betas. It was thirteen months since the last beta was released and their private beta mailing list has been silent. However, now that Sacred Gold is finally shipping later this month, LGP developers have returned to working on Bandits: Phoenix Rising.

This morning the third closed beta for Bandits: Phoenix Rising was released by LGP's CEO, Michael Simms. This third beta has some crash fixes and other work. In Michael's mailing list message, he noted that he hopes to get the rest of the bugs fixed over the next month and then ship this six year old title to Linux users.

That's about all there is to report on this game right now.
