We would love to port Diablo II and other Blizzardtitles, butBlizzard has taken a “wait and see” approach to Linuxgaming –If we can prove the market for Linux games is therewith the sales numbers for our current titles,then they’ll talk with us.
We hope you’ll be happy with our upcomingannouncements.We plan 16 titles this year, including Heavy Gear II,Soldier of Fortune,SimCity 3000 Unlimited, Descent 3, MindRover and SidMeier’s AlphaCentauri!
(PhaseBurn) =Incognito= question: has the Linux port status of Warcraft III already been determined (i.e., no port will be considered such as with Diablo 2), or is Blizzard still examining the potential of the Linux gaming market?
(Andrea[BlizzardEnt]) there are no plans for linux versions of any of our games at this time
(PhaseBurn) and if I may add on to that, why doesn’t Blizzard consider the gaming market for linux?
(Andrea[BlizzardEnt]) well.. I am not sure, but I believe the gaming market for linux is still its infancy
(Andrea[BlizzardEnt]) IN its infancy..
