Alien: Isolation Delayed For Linux

By - | Views: 17,004
Sad news folks, Alien: Isolation has been delayed for Linux. There is no set release date now, but this gives them time to polish it up.

Press release copied below:
QuoteWe're sorry to bring you bad tidings, but Alien: Isolation - The Collection for Mac and Linux has been delayed due to an issue that affects both platforms, and will not be released today.

We are committed to releasing games only once they reach our high standards for performance. A bit more time is needed to ensure that Alien: Isolation achieves this.

We will announce a new release date soon.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience while we work to bring people the best experience possible.

Delays happen, and while it's always sad when it happens it will mean we will have a better port at the end of it. I've seen Feral getting quite a lot of flack recently for their ports performance, so hopefully they can put that to rest with a good launch of Alien: Isolation. Article taken from

Better late than broken!
I'm fine with that (still got Soma to play ;) ).
And we've waited for such a long time, some more days won't change much... :)

At least it's delayed for both platforms, so it doesn't seem Linux specific. That's kinda a relief.

Maybe GRID will overtake.

Shame it's delayed but would much rather a polished release than a buggy mess. Linux gaming is still in its infancy and we need games to work as smoothly as possible.

Plus I have a ton of other games to finish first!

What exactly is being delayed? "The Collection", or the base game itself?

I'm fine with that as long as they do keep us informed, contrary to what they did with Mordor.

Quoting: gojulI'm fine with that as long as they do keep us informed, contrary to what they did with Mordor.
And I think this press release is not really very good at that, mainly because it's such short notice.

This is a good thing for me; I've got some assignments due and an exam coming up :/
