Sierra ponders Linux Tribes 2′s fate

March 6th, 2002 by keerf

With Loki gone, Sierra has been judging the fate of the Linux Tribes 2 client. This is from the Tribalwar site:

“With the passing of Loki and work on a patch for T2 getting ready to begin, the question of linux support becomes important. What will happen from your side when the next patch doesn’t get a linux version? What servers might be effected? Linux people – who are you turning to with Loki gone?”

Without much suprise windows users have posted to the forum and said “linux users can go to hell”. The linux gaming community needs to voice their selves as well. Let Sierra know what you think they should do with the Linux port of Tribes2.
