Feral Interactive are up to their usual teasing once again. They've announced F1 2017 is coming to Mac, but they're also directly requesting to see demand for it on Linux.

See their Tweet:

Should Linux re-join our FORMULA ONE team with F1 2017? It won’t be this month if they do, but show us there's demand! #THEREQUESTINATOR pic.twitter.com/MLuN2IJAyv

I believe this is the first time they've ever asked the Linux community about demand for a specific game. The interesting thing really is their wording "It won’t be this month if they do" meaning there's a real chance.

Considering they previously ported F1 2015 to Linux and said F1 2016 won't be ported as sales of F1 2015 weren't strong enough, maybe they're going to test the waters once again? I imagine if F1 2017 is actually reviewed better, it would sell better.

If Feral makes a port of this game, I will definitely be able to remove windows from my partitions. It's the only reason I keep a partition with windows (F1 2016 at this time).

Feral, port it, please.

Not interested in the 2017 season. I would love to have a F1 game with 1994 to 2000 seasons though (Formula 1 on Psx is still my all time favorite!).

I would love to have a good racing game on a Linux OS, but I'm unlikely to get one until Nvidia Surround works, as well as my Fanatec wheel and pedals. These two things are what is keeping me on Windows for the foreseeable future.

It's a problem I have want to fix, but haven't found anyone yet willing to spend some time generating dumps for reverse engineering of the USB communication protocol. The hardware is a bit too expensive to just give it a go myself.
