It seems Firewatch developer, Campo Santo, is going to continue supporting Linux with their next game In the Valley of Gods [Official Site].

They're continuing to develop games as an indie studio, so they will be self-publishing. I'm happy they're able to continue to remain indie, because Firewatch really was quite an amazing experience. If you haven't tried it and you love a good story, do check it out! Anyway, back to In the Valley of Gods…

It's another first-person adventure game, this time it's set in Egypt in the 1920s. You play as an explorer and filmmaker as you and your partner are attempting to make a seemingly-impossible discovery and an incredible film. That's a very interesting synopsis, so hopefully it's just as interesting as it sounds.

The confirmation comes from their FAQ, where Linux is specifically mentioned as a platform for release:

Quoting: stanHopefully they’ll make something better than Firewatch, which I didn’t enjoy much. The story was bad, and there wasn’t any gameplay to speak of, so…

You might be out of luck here...

QuoteAre you the folks who made Firewatch? Is it like that?

We are in fact the folks who made Firewatch. In the Valley of Gods is in no way related to Firewatch but if you enjoy well-told and well-acted dynamic video game stories, or you just really liked Firewatch, this game is for you.

I on the other side am happy to hear this.
