Well, looks like the previous excitement around Back 4 Blood and the Open Beta for Linux users is over, as it appears whatever they tweaked recently now stops Linux players with Proton.
Back in 2019, survival game Rust was one of the more high-profile games to remove their native Linux version but it seems they're not done with Linux thanks to the Steam Deck.
Irdeto, the company behind Denuvo and the newer Denuvo Anti-Cheat have announced that developers on Steam can now get direct anti-cheat integration through Steamworks. Here's what they said about working with Linux.
With the current in-progress community development effort to get Easy Anti-Cheat working in the Wine / Proton compatibility layers, they continually hit new milestones.
Valve has now launched the Trusted Mode update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in their attempt to reduce cheating further - here's what's changed.
Recently we highlighted the ongoing unofficial work to get Easy Anti-Cheat working in Wine (so Steam Play Proton then too) and it appears another major step has been achieved.
Currently, the Wine and Proton compatibility layers for Linux don't work with Easy Anti-Cheat and we have something of an update on the status for you.
Some really good news for PC gamers everywhere, as it seems one small battle against invasive anti-cheat has been won.

Here's a bit of interesting news to end the week with, BattlEye have said they are working with Valve to get their anti-cheat working with Steam Play/Proton.
As an update to my previous article talking about Easy Anti-Cheat, as it turns out they're not stopping Linux support for it at all.
Easy Anti-Cheat are apparently "pausing" their Linux support, which could be a big problem (updated)
I've just today been alerted to something that's quite worrying, according to Garry Newman from Facepunch Studios, Easy Anti-Cheat are "pausing" their Linux support.
Treat this with a pinch of salt since we've been unable to confirm it, Valve and Easy Anti-Cheat are apparently working to get it supported with Steam Play.
Just like what happened with Darwin Project only recently, it seems Paladins is no longer playable on Linux with Steam Play.
After spending a good few hours enjoying the Battle Royale game Darwin Project on Linux thanks to Steam Play, it has come to an abrupt end.
Everyone playing ARK: Survival Evolved on Linux can calm down now, as BattlEye now supports Linux and it's already live.
