Codemasters Looking At Supporting Linux, GRID Autosport Possible

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.

Awesome! But what AAA racers does Linux already have?

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.

Right now none I can think of, but we have the ones mentioned at the bottom of the article coming.

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 :-).

Maybe it wasn't specific to Wine. I've had random crashes on Windows as well.

Anyway, I'm definitely buying Project CARS as soon as it comes out on Linux.
I wonder if hype build around that game influenced people at Codemasters to consider Linux/SteamOS support.
