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.

Happy hunting!

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.

Loved both games, not as much as Dying Light(same dev)...still a great reference of zombie open world games!

I figured it would happen this way. They probably wanted to ensure no major problems. Released it working and waited to see if we would report any major issues. Has anyone tested online multiplayer?

What a surprise!

I think it's a case of the right hand not knowing what the left is doing. You'd think that the person behind the twitter account would check their information before outright denying something though!
As I said in the Steam forum: Deepsilver must fire their Twitter CM.

And again, it doesn't work with mesa drivers.....
