Nvidia: First real DirectX 11 games in 6-12 months, even more console ports expected
Nvidia expects first real DirectX 11 games no sooner than in 6-12 months. Many titles are still said to be simple console ports.
According to a report on fudzilla.com Nvidia expects that the first "real” DirectX 11 games will be released in six to twelve months. This period of time until a new render path is fully adapted in the games is nothing unusual, however.
Worse and not impossible is the assumption of Nvidia's Tony Tamassi and Ashu Rege that upcoming titles will initially still be based on DirectX 9 since games are primarily developed for consoles which only support DirectX 9. Only at a future date the PC versions will be tweaked with some DX10 and DX11 code. More details can be found at Fudzilla.
At least: AMD has already confirmed some Direct X 11 games. Among others there are Battleforge (the DX11 patch is already available), Stalker: Call of Pripyat, Dirt 2, Alien vs. Predator, The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons and Dragons Online.
