For those waiting and hoping for Ori and the Blind Forest to come to Linux, your wait may be longer than expected.
Here's a direct quote from the developer:
thomasmahlerGuys, making ports isn't something we as the developers can decide upon - We signed Ori and the Blind Forest with Microsoft, they paid for the party, so they call the shots. For the time being, Ori will only be available on Microsoft-owned platforms, such as Xbox, Win10, PC.
Other Microsoft published games have made their way to Linux, so it's not out of the question. It depends what sort of publishing deal they signed, still a damn shame though.
