BioShock Infinite Looks Set For A Linux Release (CONFIRMED)

Posted by , | Views: 38,109
Update #1 I spoke over email with my personal contact at Aspyr Media, and they confirmed they are not doing the port:
QuoteWhile Aspyr is working on a multitude of Linux titles right now, BioShock Infinite is not one of them. That said, this is exciting news and we are looking forward to a great title coming to a great platform.

We have now reached out to our contacts at 2K.

Update #2 2K have now confirmed it on their Twitter and it will be released "early 2015".

Good news, Linux gamers: BioShock Infinite is coming to Linux in early 2015. More details coming after the New Year. pic.twitter.com/kj4QXq1IYx

I love waking up to this sort of news. This isn't confirmed yet, but thanks to SteamDB we have word that BioShock Infinite looks highly likely that it will see a Linux release.

Pretty exciting, as it's yet another game I've never even touched for not having a Linux version. The Steam reviews are "Overwhelingly Positive", so that's a damn good sign to me.

On SteamDB the "depot" page now has a "Linux Binaries" section, and on the history it states this:
QuoteChanged Depots
214940/config/oslist: linux
214940/name: Linux Binaries


Considering the original publisher is 2K who don't mind Linux ports, and the Mac port was done by Aspyr Media it certaintly seems likely we will see a Linux port soon!

About the game
Indebted to the wrong people, with his life on the line, veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

Great News! Have you ever noticed how these big AAA titled games always just come out with a sequel to a series instead of the original one? Either way.. i just find that odd. Cant wait for this though!

Good, good.

Great news indeed. I could finally finish it then, yay!

It's a very good new, but I prefer that Aspyr starts with Bioshock 1, then 2 and finally with Infinity. I didn't play none even.

Any updates on the Feral Interactive tease we got a few weeks ago? Or did I miss that announcement...I know BioShock was some of the guesses people were making.

Infinite has a metascore of ~93%.

'nuff said.

Nothing is lost by playing Infinite first. It's two different worlds. But the original Bioshock needs to be played regardless. It's fantastic.

Bioshock 1: I bought the steel box back then and couldn't play the game because of the copy protection, so I had to crack it to play without a headache. Then I started to like playing without a headache. And now... I'm happy to pay for games again, thanks to Steam on linux

So bring Bioshock 3 to linux and 40 € is yours.. again
