Upcoming GNU/Linux games !

In this section I want to gather a list of upcoming commercial and closed-source Linux games.
Why not FOSS you ask ?
As you know free/open source is evolution therefore programs are never really finished, new versions being released every few months, so it will be very very hard to track and update every new game release – we have so many of those.

Games that are very likely to have a Linux client (pretty much confirmed)

01. Age Of the Decadence (Expected release date – end 2010)
02. The Broken Hourglass (Still in active development)
03. Disciples 2: Dark Prophecy (LGP haven’t forgot about it).
04. Bandits: Phoenix Rising (LGP port)
05. Rage
06. Amnesia (after the excellent sales they had with the Penumbra series they will definitely make a Linux client).
07. Postal 3 – Mature Content !
08. Overgrowth
09. Unreal Tournament 3 (Icculus is still porting it).
10. Revenge of the Titans (Coming Soon !)
11. Achron
12. Eufloria (aka Dyson) (freeware version available now)
