Not quite as bad news as the Rocket League delay, but Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition for Linux & SteamOS is being held up by some memory corruption issues.

@wstephenson @tesfabpel @israndomasis We're fighting some elusive random memory corruption - once we find it, we'll release.

— Swen Vincke (@LarAtLarian) December 18, 2015

Originally Swen stated they wanted to release it last week (in that same twitter conversation), but it seems they haven't been able to nail it down yet.

About the game (Official)
Gather your party and get back to the roots of great RPG gameplay. Discuss your decisions with companions; fight foes in turn-based combat; explore an open world and interact with everything and everyone you see.

You take on the role of a young Source Hunter: your job is to rid the world of those who use the foulest of magics. Embarking on what should have been a routine murder investigation, you find yourself in the middle of a plot that threatens to destroy the very fabric of time.

Update: You can see it at the start of their new video

Memory corruption: as in they made everyone forget they were even making a port? :D

We'll likely see it in 2018. May as well stop covering it till then

as a kickerstarter backer I wasn't very amused about the long delay of course,
but I'm still confident that this will become a great addition for our linux game collection.
we need more hq rpgs anyway.
apart from that Raze' community communications on steam community was better than that of most other studios imho.
better late than never, and a great game is a great game.

And soon, they'll find out that elusive random memory corruption was actually hiding a larger conflict with random critical API that forces to redesign the entire engine from scratch.
You know...
computer stuff...
