Sorry folks, blame me for this one. DiRT Showdown has been delayed after some crash bugs I uncovered and reported to the developers.
I think it's a great game, and the performance now I fixed the benchmarks is great (really it is), but the stability has been a problem. It was going to release for Linux on Monday the 10th of August, but that will be delayed so I can work with the developer to get the issues ironed out.
Big thank you to Virtual Programming for allowing me to test and help out here, as hopefully everyone can reap the benefits from it. I'm very much liking this change of attitude from VP, and can't wait to see DiRT Showdown run smooth as silk.
You can find DiRT Showdown on Steam, but if you want to support the porter please wait until release.
