There is to be no more Linux version of EVE Online, according to this official forum post, the unloved stepchild of CCP’s spacey MMO to be dropped on March 10. It launched alongside the game’s Mac client last November.

Why’s it being nuked? Says Slashdot: “The client was not preferred for Linux users as it did not support the Premium graphics client and did not run as well as the win32 client under Wine.”

Greek to us.
