The game will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC/MAC the 4th of February in Europe and the 23rd of February in USA.

Yes, Linux is not mentioned directly, but the SteamOS icon on their Steam page says it all. They also have the system requirements up already:
QuoteOS: Linux x86_64
Processor: Intel quad-core processor running at 3.1 GHz
Memory: 4096 MB RAM
Graphics: Intel integrated or mobile graphic card, with at least 768MB of dedicated or shared VRAM and with at least Shader Model 5.0 support


I can't wait to play this, since I like detective games/movies/books, especially Agatha Christie :)

My guess is that they wrote their game description and what platforms it was on before they added Linux support. As recently as December they didn't have plans for Linux, yet this changed about a week ago, as evidenced in this thread:

I'd buy this game immediately if it would get released DRM-free anywhere else than Steam.

I absolutely love the Hercule Poirot Character by Agatha Christie and The ABC Murders definitely is one of the most interesting Hercule Poirot stories.

Also, I really like the graphics of this game. It looks quite beautiful.

I hope they do good old Poirot's grey cells justice. The investigation gameplay needs to be spot-on. Hard to get right, I'd imagine.

PS: I'm a bit disappointed Poirot doesn't look like David Suchet. He is Hercule Poirot as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, it's hard to imagine Poirot as someone else than Suchet :/
