What a day to be a Linux gamers! DiRT Rally is also now showing signs that it will be ported to Linux. Another great racing game I have wanted to play, and our first proper Rally game.

I've put quite a bit of time into GRID Autosport since it came to Linux, but I'm a much bigger fan of Rally titles like DiRT Rally. I'm sure I'm not the only one either, so this is fantastic news.

Thanks to SteamDB as usual:

No word on who is doing it, as this was completely out of the blue. Considering the game was only released at the end of last year, this is really amazing. We are getting an extremely up to date game.

This was Codemasters first game to go in Early Access too, and it really helped them polish the title. I was quite surprised to see such a big name use Early Access, but they did it well judging by reviews.

About the game
DiRT Rally is the most authentic and thrilling rally game ever made, road-tested over 80 million miles by the DiRT community. It perfectly captures that white knuckle feeling of racing on the edge as you hurtle along dangerous roads at breakneck speed, knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.

Since the DiRT Showdown was ported by VP, my guess would be VP also here...

Definitely an amazing game. A few more like these and I'll have no reason to dual boot.

According to Steam I already own this game. No idea how that happened. Must have been a bundle. I'd still give them some money if it came to Linux.

I am very happy with this news, if this is indeed the case.

Showdown uses an older engine, though. Rally uses the same engine as GRID Autosport. I think there's more of an argument for Feral to port based on engine, rather than franchise name. But maybe this is wishful thinking.
