Steam now has over 3,000 Linux games available

By - | Views: 32,490
It's official! Steam has hit another milestone for Linux games. We now have over 3,000 Linux games to fill our time with. The exact count for me right now is 3,008!

I know, quality over quantity, but with quantity we get the possibility for more good games. I have hundreds in my own Steam library and 99% of them are great.

We've recently had Civilization VI, next week we have HITMAN and next month we have DiRT Rally! So there are some great titles still to come even this early in the year.

I know we have many more great releases due this year too, some big and some small. It really is going to be a fantastic year for Linux gaming. Cossacks 3 even has a release date now, which should be good for strategy fans!

With Valve planning to remove Greenlight in favour of Steam Direct, this could slow down a bit depending on the amount they set for developers to pay to get each game on Steam. Especially free games, they will likely see a slowdown.

Quoting: Kimyrielle
Quoting: fedotixI am happy that 3000 games ...
But what i wish in that some blockbluster very popular on windows (call of duty, battlefield ...) could be ported in linux.
Can we hope for soon ?
What do you think ?

I wouldn't bet as much as a dime to see ANYTHING made by EA or Activision on Linux, ever. At least not before hell freezes over. Of the big three publishers, Ubisoft might be closest to consider ports (they actually did!), but I wouldn't hold my breath for that, either. The one larger studio not already on Linux we -might- see one day is Bethesda. And even that is more wishful thinking on my part.

I thought there were now at least two games published by Ubisoft? Can't rmember them, but they were smaller ones that also made it to PS4 as one of the freebies, if I recall.

Actually I think there is more than ome game originally published by Activision that had an official port, The Quake games did (they were Id's publisher before Zenimax bought them...)

And onto Zenimax, who is actually the current publisher of Bethesda and id games. I think they are still on the fence. Maybe after SteamVR releases on Linux and we can get the engine ported over?

I still wish we could get more Atari published games as well, Neverwinter Nights 2 would be fantastic (hell, even getting the GOG Steam version of the first one would make me happy)
