"With Valve's Steam client and Source Engine coming to Linux in
the coming months, we decided to check with Epic Games to see how
Unreal Tournament 3 for Linux is coming along. After all, the game
was released in November of 2007 and nearly three years later the
client is still missing with few words having come from Epic Games
or Ryan Gordon (a.k.a. "Icculus"), the well known Linux game porter
that was contracted to port UT3 to Linux and has done previous
Unreal Engine projects.
"In August of 2009, Epic Games had reported to us that the UT3
Linux client was slowly being worked on, which came months after
Ryan Gordon made it sound like the port was just being optimized
and going through bug-fixes. In October, Epic Games still was
unsure if or when the UT3 Linux client would be complete."
