Codemasters Looking At Supporting Linux, GRID Autosport Possible
Posted , 4 May 2014 at 4:56 pm UTC / 7522 views

A Linux user sent a shot in the dark to the Codemasters team with decent results. It's a matter of when now and not if! So, Linux could see another AAA racer come our way in future.

QuoteNot at launch but it is something we're looking at and having discussions around. We'd love to support Linux, is a matter of when not if and for what titles.

We already have Gas Guzzlers Extreme & Project Cars heading our way soon, but we certainly do need more decent racing sims.

Hope their next Formula 1 game has Linux support. I own F1 2011 and 2012 but can't play them anymore. Probably my most missed games since I stopped dual booting. At least I can still play GP4 in wine while I wait.

Oh, OK, now I see what you meant. I'd actually failed to see there was more text after the quote, LOL.

That would be great. Codemaster's racing games are next to impossible to get working in Wine. The closest success I've had is with the first GRID, and even then it just randomly crashes.

A game I have recently put my eyes on is "Next Car Game"....
There are some people asking Linux support in the Community, but I don't remember seeing any response from devs, unfortunately.

Nice to see some good Linux racing tittles are coming, Linux is seriously lacking with this kind of racing tittles :-).
