Major game announcements for Linux
Gaming under Linux is fun, indie games are great (sometimes), but I'm missing major games not stemming from Valve itself. I'm avoiding tripling letters here, so let me define "major game" as "every paper PC game magazine will test it", and "announcement" as "the developer or publisher said it themselves" (so no rumours please).

I was very pleased hearing about Metro Last Light and Tropico 5.

Are there any official announcement of major games not from Valve I've missed? (I hope so :o) )

Does Football Manager 2014 count?

I guess Warhammer 40,000: Space Hulk counts as indie.

Didn't know about Tropico 5, really looking forward to it. I miss these kind of strategy games on linux. Too bad it will only come out next year though.
Don't know about other major games coming out for linux but I hope there are a lot more to come.

It's not all major games, but there are some interesting titles in the lists:

That good news! Not a specific game, but one of the major engines.

the fact there even thinking of bringing the crytek engine over to linux is very huge, that means the crysis games may come over

Looks like we're on track to make Carmack eat his words on Linux gaming for his own failures in the gaming market.

We already have the Unigine Heaven benchmark, so not sure another one is needed. Some games would be welcome though.

The difference is that Crytek is actually used in multiple games. As it currently stands there are more Unigine benchmark demos then games using the engine.
