It WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
You know why? Becuase Linux is Free software.
Who are the big game developers nowadays?
EA? Microsoft? Valve?
I mean seriously. These guys hate linux. They are so pro-closed source, pro-propriatory that's it's not even funny. They will never volentarially support Linux. Not even if Linux had 10 percent of the game market. Not even if there was a demand for it.
These companies are less driven by ideology than by the prospect of making money. Ideology affects some of their managers, but the managers who can demonstrate profit will tend to win out.
