Unreal Tournament 3 to run on Linux

Unreal Tournament 3 LinuxLooks like Linux is getting some love as well from Mark Rein of Epic Games confirming Unreal Tournament 3 will be available for Linux, reports linuX-gamers.

"We’re a multi-platform company, please come to grips with that. We like the PC. We like the 360. We like the PS3. We like the Macintosh. We like Linux. We will deliver UT3 (Unreal Tournament 3) for all of these platforms and it will rock on every one," stated Mark Rein.

It’s nice to see Linux getting some love from one of the bigger companies out there. The only confusing part about this "announcement" is whether the Linux version will be available on day one alongside the Windows version, or if it will released on a later date. I’m leaning towards the later.

Either way it is great news for the Linux community that the gaming industry is beginning to treat them with the respect they deserve. Let’s hope other companies follow Epic’s lead.
