Well this is confusing, but still awesome. Dead Island Definitive Edition and Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition supporting Linux/SteamOS is now 100% official.
From their update here:
QuoteWe are happy to announce that Dead Island Definitive Edition and Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition now supports Linux & SteamOS!
And don't forget: As a Steam owner of either the original Dead Island, Dead Island Riptide, or both titles, you’ll also automatically receive a loyalty discount of up to 85% off the respective Definitive Edition of the game(s) you own, as well as a discount on the Definitive Collection bundle based on whether you own one or both.
Confusing, because Deep Silver told me directly this wasn't happening. I shot them an email early this morning (with no reply as usual) pointing out their tweet and how the Linux/SteamOS versions were actually on Steam. Now hours later it's all official.
Great news. As usual though, proper communication to us would be nice.
Thanks for letting me know zerodogg.
