Wolfenstein not for Linux

21.07.2009 : 23:36
LG reader Tweet wrote id Software's John Carmack about the status of Linux ports for the first-person shooter developer's upcoming titles (minus QuakeLive, which has a Linux port in active development already):

"Wolfenstein is pretty unlikely, since it was developed at Raven, and published by Activision. There are no firm plans for linux ports of the idTech 5 titles, but it certainly isn't off the table. I don't think it will be very difficult to get them running on the binary nvidia drivers, but bringing them up to functionality and acceptable performance on other OpenGL drivers would probably be a more significant undertaking than we could afford."

idTech 5 is id Software's next engine, being used for Rage and the as-of-yet untitled DOOM sequel.
