Leszek Godlewski announced on Twitter that he will be leaving the Linux porting business, but the news isn't that bad. One of the original coders is taking over the Linux port of Darksiders.

I'm leaving the Linux porting business, but Darksiders is in good hands — one of the original Vigil coders is taking it over from me!

It's sad, but we can't really argue with his reasoning. Working remotely has a lot of drawbacks, and it's not for everyone.

We will keep you posted when some more solid details about Darksiders comes in, until the next time folks! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Wow, a pity, this guy is an awesome porter!

That's something I would love to do, porting games to linux.

Can't wait for this game to be released on Linux...

What, he was defeated by the silly glitch ? :)
Joke aside, so sorry to hear that, especially now when we need more good porters.
I know that some are discontent with his work on Deadfall and Painkiller but I think he is (was?) good at his job.

I wonder what exactly "leaving the Linux porting business" means. I see he is leaving for The Astronauts, and they're looking into Linux too.

It's a Shame that Leszek leave the porting. I have doubts with this project

aww man. Sucks to lose a good porter, though I can't argue with his reasoning. His reply to HadBabits on twitter sounds good to me though! Been looking forward to this one. It's one of my good friends favorite franchises and I keep telling him I'm finally going to play it when it comes to Linux.

Indeed, hopefully they've poached him for Ethan Carter. Which would mean he didn't really leave the Linux porting business. I want that game...

Sad... he making good ports like Painkiller H&D and Deadfall Adventures and now making Darksiders and Darksiders 2...

I would love that. I'd much rather see a Linux version of Ethan Carter than Darksiders anyway. I always found Darksiders to be a very boring game. Maybe it's just the PC version, i'm not sure.

If this means that there's another studio out there with internal Linux know-how, then there's a positive side too (ultimately, I feel that the future of Linux gaming lies with people who do stuff internally) :)

When I spoke to him last week, he said he was looking forward to working with creative people on new projects. I imagine he'll help out with Linux stuff, but it sounds like he's keen to sink his teeth into something that isn't digging through other people's code for existing projects.

Maybe you'll convince him to take part on one of your audiocasts someday? :)
I bet he has some interesting things to say.
