Aspyr Media Plans More Linux Games In The Next 6 Months UPDATED

By GNU Fan - | Views: 24,868
Aspyr Media are starting to be fan favourites with their open communication. They can't give full details of course, but they have given us hints about more games coming to Linux.

Speaking on reddit one of their team stated this:
Aspyr BlairI have a confession to make team Linux.

In addition to the super secret project that shall never be named;), there will be 2 more Linux projects coming from Aspyr over the next 6 months. One of them you don't know you love yet...the other, you already do.

Its going to be a great year for Linux and Mac gaming.

It's not clear if this includes the new Civilization game or not, but it's still good to know they are working their asses off to bring us some big name games.

What games do you think it will be? I am seriously hoping for some Star Wars games as a long time fan.

For those really not in the loop: Aspyr Media are the studio behind the Borderlands and Civilization ports for Linux.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed by Aspyr that Civilization: Beyond Earth is not included in this announcement, and that there are actually 7 games, not 2, to be released over the next 6 months for Linux.

AspyrCorrect, this is in addition.

Actually the count just got bumped to 7 O.O

I don't know I love it yet? I wonder if that's a cryptic hint at something. Hopefully it's more substantial than a pigeon dating simulator.

Heh. I agree with the article writer that it sounds like it could be Civilization: Beyond Earth. Would be great to get a comment on it from Aspyr if possible.

My guess is that it is either Bioshock Infinite or a game that isn't out yet :>

Staph! My wallet is NOT ready! xD

But seriously, good on them! =)

I'm thinking that's 4 games total, and that the 3 mentioned in this article are separate from Civ.
Because like the writer said, they are just being cryptic because they "can't give full details" but they've already announced the civ port.

But even if not, 3 games is really awesome too, and it sounds like they're pretty enthusiastic about porting these games so that's good

I wonder if the "super secret project" is included in that 6 month period

I think, it might be Bioshock Infinite

I really love these guys, and Feral! I'm ready and waiting to buy their next game. I've already bought Borderlands The Pre-Sequel because of them (I've never bought a Borderlands game on release before).

Bioshock Infinite... F*** me dirty in a waffle t%$!
I mean yes please. BI and tomb raider have been unplayed and in my collection for a long time would be nice to play them.
