Black Ops 2 for Linux
I've went to the Treyarch forums and requested that Call of Duty: Black Ops II be ported over to Linux. If you guys would like to would like to help me, and leave a comment requesting it would be much appreciated. I believe the more vocal the community becomes about certain games the more inclined they will feel to port a game over to Linux for STEAM.

You can begin with adding the [Linux] tag to your nick ;)

I doubt forum posts will convince Acivision to port the CoD franchise over. What will convince them is valve releasing the steam box.

Or perhaps if they see some success from the unannounced port of a Blizzard game.

Activision and the development studios they own have not listened to their customers since 2006.

On top of this, and I think this is the more important point, Activision has a number of exclusivity deals with Microsoft for their Xbox 360 console.

They will not port their CoD franchise to linux. However various CoD PC titles are working rather nicely with Wine. Still buggy here and there but it's the best you can hope for with CoD. Until all the contracts are up and Activision refuses to renew the terms, we won't see official linux support for any of their games.

We can all hope, but we know it's not going to happen. Sorry.

It all depends on how succeful Steambox is gonna be. If Kotik will be able to squize more cash from Linux ports then from M$ exclusives, we will see Kotikvision ports :)

They has already ported some games to OSX

Shouldn't be too hard to start porting their games to Linux.
I like COD, but I have no reason to buy it if I have to install Windows for it.

Their OSX ports are shining examples of how ports should not be handled though.
