Total War Saga: TROY is now a 12 month Epic Games Store exclusive

By - | Views: 32,977

Total War Saga: TROY, a game that was confirmed to be coming to Linux, is now going to start life as an Epic Games Store exclusive for the first year.

For the Linux version, this would mean a total delay because Epic have no plans to support Linux on their store officially. Creative Assembly announced it will release on EGS in August and be free for 24 hours, with Steam to follow a year later. Creative Assembly mentioned they have "no plans" for future games to be exclusives.

Linux was due to get it "shortly after Windows" originally but now it's entirely unclear. Feral Interactive, the company who work with Creative Assembly to port various titles to Linux and macOS were the company doing Total War Saga: TROY. I spoke to them today but they simply mentioned they have "nothing we can share regarding A Total War Saga: TROY on macOS or Linux".

If / when we hear more about about the Linux version, we will let you know.

Also immediately clear that the Linux release has been delayed. If not cancelled.
In this case, it makes sense, though.

Right now, the game is only available on EGS, which doesn't support Linux.
Wouldn't make sense for any publisher to pay Feral to do a Linux port when it can't be sold anywhere (except maybe on Feral's own store, but why would publishers care about that).

Just wait until it comes out on Steam, chances are that then there will be a Linux version.

Only issue is there you miss out on it being free
