Blizzard is rumoured to be working on a Linux port, bringing one of the company’s titles to Ubuntu sometime in 2013, according to Phoronix.

The website claims to have heard from a “reliable source” with “additional proof” that at least one of the publisher’s games will make it to Linux this year.

The source also said that Blizzard’s plan is to test the water with Linux gaming, and to see if there’s a future for Blizzard titles on the platform.

In December 2012, Valve opened up the beta testing phase for Steam on Linux, adding to a positive-looking future for gaming on the penguin-powered platform.
