The first video game about Multihead was released on September 1971.

Atari and THQ has published most of these games

Due to technical limitations, multi-head display is impossible on Windows and Linux with ATi CrossFire and NVidia SLI multi-GPU setups.

Expanding the view to other displays is usually accompanied by rather exotic display aspect ratios, such as 8:3 (two 4:3 monitors) and 12:3 (actually 4:1, three 4:3 monitors).

This is NOT for cloned displays.
