Considering they state "Maintain Linux support for CryENGINE" that does suggest that there is already at least a basic port of their 3D engine.

All around great news, it means another major game engine shall hopefully be fully supported under Linux, who knows maybe we will get Crysis ;) Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

According to Phoronix, there was already a Linux port of the engine running internally at Crytek one year ago. If it's true, while it would probably need some work and polishing, it also means that the biggest part of the work is done and could be usable quite quickly.

And then there's this from 10 days ago (I'd make a news post about it, but "There might benews coming!" isn't news in itself to me):

The job advertisement is super exciting though! :D

Makes you think why we dont have these things on Linux. I dont think anyone knows how to make stuff for Linux. Anyway, this would be a cool job for someone. Hope they find their person.Would love to see some crytek games.

We probably have Valve to thank for it, I'm guessing they've triggered many things by bringing steam to Linux and announcing Linux console. Now go buy, Portal, Half Life and Dota to say thanks!
