"Despite the delay (thanks Hex) which Sierra announced earlier this week, Dynamix has confirmed what Dave Georgeson hinted at previously: Tribes 2, a sci-fi multiplayer team-oriented FPS, will have both a Linux client and dedicated server, being developed by Loki Entertainment Software. Thanks to {SiR}Mojo_Tooth for forwarding the current edition of the Tribes 2 newsletter (Tribes 2 Beacon) which made the revelation:"

"Q: Will there be Linux support? A: You bet. By popular demand, we've contracted with Loki, a company that has done many Linux conversions for other games. The server code is nearly done and they are making great progress on the client code (which will ship separately from the regular game). The server code will ship within the regular retail box."

"Furthermore, the delay will likely allow for a simultaneous Linux and Win32 release, giving the Linux gaming community a second chance to make their presence known this holiday shopping season."
