    I'm going to go with "Alas, no. None of the AAA studios have plans for anything substantial before the end of the year."

    Screw 'em.

    Go indie devs!

      "Linux gaming news?"

      Answer: yes.
      Your next headline will be "nothing to be released on Linux".
      ... But wait, it won't be new: everybody knows no game will be released on Linux.

        You guys are so pessimistic... But probably right.

          Any new linux AAA titles? no. WHY?

          Because AMD drops binary support for their shader model 4 and 4.1 hardware (HD2000.. HD4000) so soon to make sure that no company makes plans to release their games on linux platform. AMD hinders linux gaming efforts.

              OpenCL continues to mature. Thanks to university research, scientific processing and high-computing with needs for GPGPU processing Linux gets the best GPGPU implementation in the world.

              Wayland modernizes the Linux desktop graphics server and brings performance improvements.

              Intel already all open-source with proprietary driver. The open-source AMD driver continuing to improve and getting parity with Catalyst. AMD announces the abandon Catalyst for Linux and focus more on the open source driver. Only Nvidia left with a proprietary driver, while nouveau continuously improve.

              Indie developers further embrace Linux and open source. Desura grows.

              Windows 8 arrives, the market reception is poor. The customers hate it.

              Valve launches the Linux-powered Steambox game console, it becomes a huge commercial success. All its game run natively on Linux and is available on Linux through Steam.
              Linux becomes the preferred video game development platform.
              Things are developed for Linux (Steambox) first, and Windows second.

                "FarCry 3 on Linux" link points to an article about CryEngine 3 having a native Linux port. I would like to point out, however, that FarCry 3 has nothing to do with CryTek, is developed by Ubisoft Montreal, uses a completely different, internal engine (called Dunia 2) and all this information is just a google away...

                  I dunno, did they ever announce anything for Linux in previous E3's? I don't recall reading about anything Linux related during past E3's..

                  Here's hoping that Valve will formally announce the Linux Steam port though

                    Will there finally be a new surprise Linux game announcement? It's been about five years since the last major AAA Linux game title release (Enemy Territory: Quake Wars).
                    Watch out, Michael. You'll get Q started up again about how Farmville is a AAA linux game.
