According to a member of BBI Interactive the game may come to Linux and Mac in the future. Not likely soon, but at least they aren't saying no right away:
QuoteAs jaen says, Unity does support Mac and Linux as well as PC (and a stack of other platforms - Hololens anyone??), so in theory we should be able to create Mac and Linux versions. We've talked about this idea in the past, but right now all our energy and attention are focused on making the PC launch as good as we can.Source
I'm a big fan of the Homeworld series and since the game is being developed with Unity I really hope it comes to Linux in the near future. Homeworld: DoK is due to be released this 20th January.
