    Phoronix' "Major Linux Game Port" speculation thread

    Michael Larabel from Phoronix.com tweeted:

    "another major game will be announced natively for #Linux in the very near future."

    Anybody else thinking World of Warcraft?

    I hope it's not World of Warcraft, I just unsubbed and deleted my characters so I couldnt play it again.

    Wouldnt mind some GW2 love though, as they have made a Mac client (that or even SWTOR would be great)

    I guess I should've worded it as "Anybody else hoping World of Warcraft?" I've previously said I'll only start playing Blizzard games again if they release Linux ports. I was mostly thinking it was this based on the article from a few months back where Blizzard stated they also weren't thrilled about Win8 in response to Valve's statement about Win8 sucking.

    If they want to draw in people, it'd be nice to see something like the Sims 3. My wife would ditch windows in a heart beat

    Blizzard support would be very welcome from a lot of people, I imagine

    I'm hoping it's Knight Online. Only because i'm sick of using private servers to avoid the hackshield. I wanna play the real version! D: And also manually patching the game is getting annoying and i'm worried about the difficulty of manually installing the expansion update. (I know this game isn't major but it's my favourite game ever)

    Just about any Major Game Port would be welcome, as long as isn't Yet Another FPS. I want native Skirim, and I bought that game on Steam at a 50% discount. I would pay full price for a working Linux port. No kidding.

    Well, I would imagine "if" it is another game from Valve it has a high likely hood of being Dota 2. Valve is seriously engineering this game to be the next big e-sports title and the quicker they get it working cross platform like this the better (It also helps that it is a closed beta already making control over it easier I should imagine, not the Valve is doing a great job at the moment anyhow )
