Out now is Wine 1.9.11 and its release has improvements in its Direct3D 11 support, but still it doesn't appear that Wine is ready yet for handling all the latest D3D11 AAA games.

Looking at the 1.9.11 changes via WineHQ.org, there are more Direct3D functions implemented, new D3D11 test cases, and over 100 other Direct3D releated changes in this release.
