After much speculation the last few months, Valve has denied rumors about an Linux version of Steam.

Shortly after the new version of Steam was released in May this year, it appeared files that appeared to belong to an upcoming Linux version of the program. This was not very unlightly, since Steam at the same time was released to the Mac operating system. Valve did, however, not a comment to this and since then the speculations has been swirling.

During an interview with Games Industry, Doug Lombardi, Marketing Director at Valve, denying rumors that they are working on a Linux version of the popular platform.

Q: Final question, and one I’m sure you’re not super-keen to answer, but I promised one of our tech guys I’d ask it. What truth is there to rumours that you’re also working on a Linux version of Steam?

Doug Lombardi: There’s no Linux version that we’re working on right now…

This means that supporters of open source is going to have to wait a little longer before they can play their favorite games from Steam without additional software.
