Valve’s Linux Play May Lead More Games To Follow Suit

Brought up in the Phoronix Forums yesterday by a reader was a reference to Ryan Gordon’s resume that he was contracted to port Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 to Linux. This led a Phoronix reader to email Ryan “Icculus” Gordon and now we managed to get our hands on Ryan’s e-mail response.

Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 was released for Windows back in 2006 and runs off the older Linux-compatible Unreal Engine 2.5 (not the newer Unreal Engine 3), but to date we have not seen any Linux client of this game developed by Tripwire Interactive that takes place during World War II. Ryan clarified that he was contracted to just perform the Linux server port and then for Mac OS X he did the server port too, and he is also doing a Mac OS X client port for this game and that version will soon be released.
