    Phoronix: Feral Interactive Confirms Their Latest Linux Game Ports

    Last week during Valve's SteamOS / Linux game sale that happened during the Game Developers' Conference, a number of new Linux games were confirmed. We now know who is working on porting some of these new titles over to Linux...

    Something needs to come from EA and bring Origin to Linux along with Blizzard. As much as I like Steam I can't imagine having true PC gaming experience without their titles on Linux.

          They're already porting Shadow of Mordor and now these 3 games. I haven't played their port of Empire: Total war, but their port of XCOM is damn good. I'm really excited for these games and for Feral continuing to get work porting games to Linux.

            Interessting about Blizzards argumentation is that Linux users play their games anyways via dual-boot or wine. They expect much less purchases than you can expect from 2% market share...

              I'm glad they're continuing to port stuff, that obviously means it's a financially viable prospect.

              As long as from a developer/publisher point-of-view that they've got nothing to lose in porting then they're going to do it. We just need to reach the tipping point where we'll get the likes of EA and Activision green-lighting ports. Not that I want their games, but that's obviously the litmus test that Linux is a true gaming platform (on desktop / PC anyway, not counting Android).

                I agree.. BUT the problem isn't the number of games but the quality of games. Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3 are a great start. Now we need bioshock series along with the battlefield series just AAA in general. I'll have to say that this Batman looks good along with Company of Heros..

                    What? Hearthstone runs on Unity? Then it's literally just clicking the "export to Linux" button! Surely even from 1% marketshare will they make enough money to compensate for the extra worksecond.
