The Status Of Unigine's Linux-Compatible Game

Earlier this year we shared that Unigine was working on a new game that was being developed internally and would run on Linux with their continually improving game engine that already sets an OpenGL precedent on Linux. Following that we did a Linux interview with the Unigine developers to talk about their proprietary engine, gaming on Linux, etc. But months later, what is the status of this game project? Well, rather bleak right at the moment.

Unigine's CEO, Denis Shergin, has shared with us that currently they have temporarily postponed work on this game project to develop a "short interactive demo" for Microsoft's DirectX 11.0 launch. However, Denis is hoping the developers will get back to work on this multi-platform Unigine game project in November. This does, however, lower hopes of seeing the Unigine game make it out this year as was once anticipated.

With id Software shafting Linux users with their forthcoming engine/games, Unreal Tournament 3 still missing, the Unigine game now being pushed back, and not a whole lot of interesting titles coming out from the small publishers right now for Linux, this isn't an opportune moment for Linux gamers this year.
