Kingdom Come: Deliverance does sound like it will be amazing, but sadly the Linux version is far off, and will be quite a wait after the Windows version.

We contacted the developers on twitter who confirmed the Linux version is still happening:

@gamingonlinux Yes, sir! :)

— Warhorse Studios (@WarhorseStudios) February 4, 2015



They did respond to our request for when it will come which wasn't clear:

@gamingonlinux Hard to tell.. but better don't expect it too early :( Sorry, we are adding other (platform-)builds from time to time!

— Warhorse Studios (@WarhorseStudios) February 4, 2015



On another site that spoke to the developers they said this (rough translation!):
QuoteAs we have already said, the PC is the primary platform for us. But I'm afraid the console, Mac and Linux will build gradually during the first half of 2016


Recent footage of it shows off how promising it looks:

The game was funded on Kickstarter with over a million dollars, and has continued funding on its own website where it has hit 2.2 million now.

About the game (From the Kickstarter)
A first-person, open world, realistic RPG that will take you to Medieval Europe in a time of great upheaval and strife. A humble, young blacksmith loses everything to war. As he tries to fulfill the dying wish of his father, Fate drags him into the thick of a conspiracy to save a kidnapped king and stop a bloody conflict. You will wander the world, fighting as a knight, lurking in the shadows as a rogue, or using the bard’s charm to persuade people to your cause. You will dive deep into a sweeping, epic, nonlinear story from Daniel Vávra, an award-winning designer from the Mafia series. Our unique, first-person combat system lets you wield sword or bow in both one-on-one skirmishes and large-scale battles. All of this - and more - brought to life beautifully with next-gen visuals delivered via Cryengine.

What do you think to this news, are you disappointed Linux isn't a focus right now?

At least they confirm it's still coming. Unlike The Witcher 3 where CDPR just ignores all questions about a Linux version.

I didn't even know this game existed. 10/10 will buy.

I think one of the reasons for this is CryEngine's lack of Linux support (I know Crytek are currently porting it, but they aren't done yet...).

I really hope that they'll port it even if Crytek drops the promised Linux version of their engine.

I hope crytek keeps working on their port, due to this game coming, and most of all star citizen.

This is one of the most underreported games I know about. It looks amazing and looks like it will be amazing (very different things, first one is about visuals and the other about gameplay experience), yet very few people know about it and there are either few articles or they have largely gone unnoticed.

Has been featured several times in my favorite German paper(!) games magazine!

it is really sad when developer cannot name the platforms they develop for correctly.

QuoteAs we have already said, the PC is the primary platform for us. But I'm afraid the console, Mac and Linux will build gradually during the first half of 2016

it is even bigger fiasco when they make error when naming their primary platform

I'd call that minor annoyance, and for sure it's way less sad than not having a Linux version at all.

Source? I've been under the impression that the engine has been Linux capable since mid last year. I can't recall really hearing/reading anything more about it much past when Crytek announced and showed Linux support at GDC last year. Everyone knows about Star Citizen, this game and I feel like there was a ski/snowboarding game announced last year that even showed it running in Ubuntu that was running in CryEngine.

EDIT* Yep, HERE is the link to the GOL article about the game titled "Snow".

Liam can you reach out to the devs for a linux support update please? It looks to be going into "closed beta" at the end of march.. which from the looks of things is open for registration on their website right now @ www.snowthegame.com
