Someone pinch me, I must be dreaming. It seems Rocket League may actually release sometime soon after a developer posted about it on their Steam forum.

From the post:
QuoteHey all, just wanted to let you know that we're getting close to a release window, but still need to polish more, address remaining bugs, and ensure that cross-play properly works :)


They said a while back it was pushed back to a Q2 release, so they may actually hit that.

The Linux build is in the "QA branch", so it could arrive with the patch due at the end of this month.

I am pleased they are finally saying something a little more positive, hopefully there aren't too many things they need to finish up.

It has been a bit of a rollercoaster with being pushed back multiple times, originally due out in December 2015 it will be fantastic to finally be able to actually write up a release post on it, and play the damn thing.

It does further solidify my stance on buying games: Don't buy them until the Linux version is confirmed to be out.

Will you still be picking up a copy? I know I will be, delay or not it's still a very popular game and looks incredibly fun.

Maybe we will get to play it for GOL's birthday on the 5th of July at this rate!

I think it will still be a big hit when it lands :)

http://steamcharts.com/app/252950#1y The player base is still looking pretty good based on the whole game lifespan. I wouldn't be too worried about the game feeling like the it is on it's way out.

QuoteQ2 came and went....

Seems to be tactic.... I almost bought it today - because I thought it was already out on Linux. But then I double.checked my steam library, and there it was sitting ducked in its windows corner....

It's been almost 3 months since this game was just about to release...
