Nadat al diverse (Linux) sites hadden aangegeven dat de Lithtech 3D versie 1.0 en 2.0 engine (van onder andere de games Blood 2 en Shogo:Mobile Armor Division)geport zouden worden naar Linux, is het eindelijk officieel bevestigd door Monolith Productions:Kirkland, WA (January 19, 2000) - Monolith Productions and Hyperion Software announced today that they have extended an existing licensing agreement to include a port of Monolith's critically acclaimed Shogo: Mobile Armor Division and LithTech 1.0 and 2.0 to the Linux operating system. The Linux port is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2000. Under an initial agreement with Monolith in April, 1999, Hyperion agreed to port Shogo and the LithTech 3D Engine to both the Amiga and Apple Macintosh platforms (http://www.lith.com/corporate/04_28_1999.html). The existing agreement has now been extended to include Linux for x86 and Power PC processors. "Porting the LithTech 3D engine to Linux gives licensees and game players one more reason to choose LithTech technology and LithTech-based games" comments Jason Hall, CEO of Monolith Productions. "Our latest agreement with Hyperion continues our quest to provide the highest quality, most versatile 3D engine in the market." Monolith Productions heeft verder aangekondigd dat Shogo:Mobile Armor Division eveneens voor Linux door Monolith geport zal worden.

Persoonlijk vindt ik de engine retegoed en zelfs op sommige punten beter dan de UT en Q3 engine.
