Metro Exodus to get a release date for Linux "soon" say 4A Games

By - | Views: 22,064

Recently, Metro Exodus ended its Epic Store exclusivity and Deep Silver (the publisher) confirmed it was heading to Linux. In a recent Reddit AMA (Ask me anything), the developer 4A Games mentioned the Linux port too.

In reply to a comment asking about macOS/Linux they said this:

[…] Throughout DLC development we've also been very busy working on various platforms for all of the Metro series. We recently confirmed the linux version and will reveal the launch date for that soon. […]

Really great to see it get confirmed multiple times now, strange though how they were so quiet on it before it hit Steam to no be so willing to talk about it when asked. Having all the Metro games on Linux is going to be great though, a full series for us. Seems it's had a warm reception on Steam too, with it now having a "Very Positive" user rating from well over ten thousand people.

Once they do talk about dates, we will let you know. Will you be picking up a copy when it's out for Linux officially?

You can check out Metro Exodus on Steam.

celphyYeah. That's why I said I'm torn on that.
I'll propably buy it if it works well enough.
Most versions still seem to have technical difficulties though.

Well, since they announced that Exodus will come to Linux I decided to start playing Metro series (always had them on my library but never made the time to get into them... shame on me) and I have to say that redux is a very solid port. Outside of some very rare crashes (probably I got 3 in 25 hs of game play of 2033 and last light) it works flawlessly with Mesa drivers. So I'm confident that we will get a well polished version :D

Lolo01Clearly a purchase for me when it comes out on Linux.
Apart from the Feral ports, we don't have too many AAA's lately.

celphyPretty torn over here. EGS's exclusivity is a no-go for me.
But I'd like to support a Linux version ASAP.
Well, Exodus is no more an exclusivity.

Let me clarify that:

A developer that has decided to enter into an exclusivity deal with Epic is not someone I want to support.
In the end they are placing money over consumer interests and hoping it works out in their favour.
I personally don't want it to pay off so I'd rather not buy those games.

I don't think developers has any influence over store deals , you should blame publishers.

Godd news, but they got an year to plan this ahead, could did it earlier.
I will get as soon it launch.

Well, those of you who know me will not be surprised I'll be all over this release. :)
An obvious purchase imo, and with the current state of things I'd argue more so than ever!

If you don't buy it, the publisher will see it and think that Linux ports aren't worth doing, because they don't sell.

If you buy it, the publisher will see that it sells on Steam and that this is where the money is. It's one unit sold less on the Epic Store.

Think about the signals you're sending.

You could also say: If you buy it, the publisher will see that the exclusivity deal did pay, and that the rest stills buys it a year later on Steam.

It's not my standpoint, but it's not invalid either.

Yes, but not buying it now on Steam (for Linux) would make the situation worse, wouldn't it?

I absolutely think so. I might see it differently if I were on Windows. (But probably not even then.)

Now if only we could get a similar announcement for Borderlands 3 (announced yesterday to come to Steam on the 13th of March). Come on Feral!

Didn't they do the previous Linux versions themselves?
