Well then, this is interesting. Not long after Feral Interactive asked to see interest for a Linux version of F1 2017 [Steam], the official Twitter account just let something slip.

Here's the Tweet:

We are aware that there's a delay with the Mac and Linux versions. We are looking into it.

— Formula 1® Game (@Formula1game) August 22, 2017

In case it vanishes, it says this:

QuoteWe are aware that there's a delay with the Mac and Linux versions. We are looking into it.

No one has officially confirmed it's actually on the way to Linux, so I find that amusing.

Also, a Feral staff member went onto reddit today with a question of "Favourite car in a game?" and in this post, they said "... andnothisisdefinitelynotateaserofanykind.".

Well well, what do we all think?

Thanks to Knucks in our Discord for finding it!

It is of course entirely possible that the official twitter person wasn't entirely up to date on the matter. But to be honest, I sort of expect that the decision was made before Feral asked whether Linux users wanted it on twitter. These things work much better as hype generator than as source for a business decision.

DiRT Rally is best racing game indeed, not so sure about Dirt 4 though, seems like more arcade and with lots of weird stuff and boring tracks.. but still would play ofc :)

When i first saw this on twitter i thought an error in the community managers tweet might have happened. But then i thought Linux is specifically mentioned alongside Mac which we already new was coming. With Linux mentioned alongside Mac which rarely happens that specifically. I thought i had to share it on discord.
