Gas Guzzlers Extreme was causing major excitement when it was planned for Linux, but sadly things didn't turn out so well.

I'm a little late on actually writing about this, but at least now you will know:

@gamingonlinux The Linux version was outsourced but the contracted party sadly did not deliver.

We did ask for further clarification, and they stopped replying again. It's a shame, but when this was all confirmed last year we had far less games available.

I'm just going to continue to look forward to Project Cars and GRID Autosport, time to move on! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

That's a shame. The game looks pretty good, and I was looking forward to playing it.
Hopefully Grid comes soon, and Formula Fusion - which is running on UE4 - also comes to the Linux platform.

So far thats what happend to all racing games for Linux ..... its so sad, none of them wants my money.

Is there any racing game that will really come to linux? I don't think so, all I see are announcements.

My exact feelings. My wallet is eagerly wating good driving/racing sims (ETS2 is a great game, though). Feeling so tempted to buy Project CARS to play it on windoze... Lord, lead me not into temptation, and deliver me from evil....

We already have Iracing if you are into really serious racing.
Project Cars is also on its way!

I never even heard of this game. Is it out already (the Windows version, obviously)?

Oh lame... Well we still don't have many car/racing games on Linux at all, I was quite looking forward to this one... I guess there's still GRID and Mad Max in the works.

Nothing's coming out on Linux till it's out on Linux.

Too bad. At least we have Grid and Drift Stage to look forward to.
