Total War: SHOGUN 2 looks like it will be heading to Linux & SteamOS

Well this was quite a surprise to see! It looks like Total War: SHOGUN 2 [Steam] is going to make an appearance on Linux & SteamOS.

Just now I saw this pop-up on SteamDB:

203726/name: Linux Shogun 2 FOTS

Another highly rated strategy game that certainly looks like it will come to Linux. Of course, SteamDB isn't confirmation, but it's looking pretty likely. No idea when it will happen of course, but we will keep you updated if we hear anything.

Feral Interactive did the Mac version, so it's likely they are now bringing it over to Linux. I haven't personally heard anything from them on that though.

About the game
Total War: SHOGUN 2 features enhanced full 3D battles via land and sea, which made a name for the series, as well as the tactical campaign map that many refer to as the heart and soul of Total War. Featuring a brand new AI system inspired by the scriptures that influenced Japanese warfare, the millennia old Chinese “Art of War”, the Creative Assembly brings the wisdom of Master Sun Tsu to Total War: SHOGUN 2. Analysing this ancient text enabled the Creative Assembly to implement easy to understand yet deep strategical gameplay.

If it lands on Linux will you be picking up a copy? Or do you already own it and look forward to playing it on Linux? Let us know in the comments. Article taken from

EDIT: I read somewhere two or three years ago that SEGA/CA planned to eventually release all of their games.

I own this game on Steam already and can't play it currently. This is great news! Can't wait to play my favorite version of the traditional TW series on my Linux rig soon!

Shogun 2 is a fantastic game and I've been hoping for a long time to get a port. Excellent news.
Tetractys Feb 20, 2017
Already own it (Steam via wine). Very very good! Happy to hear the probable release on Linux :)
Cyril Feb 20, 2017
Good start for 2017 to become the Linux Year in Gaming, isn't it ?
Mike Feb 20, 2017
I already own it, but it would be great to be able to play it on Linux!

Wonder what happened to Total War: Rome II. That was talked about being ported and has a Linux depot in limbo a few years too.
Nouser Feb 20, 2017
Too bad, I already own it and all the expansions and played them to death.

Too good, it's probably the best TW entry and I'll play it to death again.

Good that I only own the standalone expansion fall of the samurai, definitely will support the porter (Feral?) and buy the full game when it releases
Adinimys Feb 20, 2017
Oh yes ! :D
This is one of the few Windows game I own from before I switched to Linux. I won't be supporting Feral on this one though because I already have it :/
(but I guess that the port process shouldn't be that much work considering they already ported it on Mac)
