Kingdom Come: Deliverance may not come to Linux at all, more bad news

By - | Views: 36,023
Previously, Kingdom Come: Deliverance [Official Site, Kickstarter] had an update where the developers said they weren't aiming for a same-day release for Linux. Now, they said to me directly the Linux version may not happen at all.

I was sent an email by a GOL supporter, who shared the response he got from Warhorse Studios:

I then contacted them myself, and I spoke to a completely different person who gave a very similar answer:

I can confirm that there won't be a Linux version on release date. I can confirm that we keep the Linux version in mind and would like to realize it in future, however we can't promise that this ever will happen.

I asked if they thought that made their Kickstarter update note poorly worded and they don't agree:
QuoteNo I don't think that. It means exactly what I said.

I will have to completely disagree there.

Essentially, the Linux version of Kingdom Come: Deliverance that was promised during the Kickstarter may not come to Linux at all.

This makes their wording in their Kickstarter update pretty poor. There's a big difference between no launch support and not being sure if you're even doing a Linux version any more.

If you funded it for a Linux version, go get a refund right now. Article taken from

I really find this sort of behaviour bordering on fraudulent, and the only reason I dont say its completely fraudulent is that they may have not intended it to go this way.

However to promise a release platform then on a crowdfunding site in order to ellicit pledges only to pull that from the lineup furter down the line is appalling behaviour in my opinion.

Refund for me, i'll reconsider buying it if the Linux version happen.

Can you get refunds from Kickstarter? I always thought that sending money to Kickstarter is like flushing it down the drain.

I really don't understand why these things are still allowed to happen. Crowd-funding fraud has happened enough times now that I am surprised regulatory laws haven't caught up yet.

It’s the same thing they’ve been (not) saying for months if not years, really.

Not that I know, but if you contact Warhorse directly they should give it to you.

A kickstarter game that promised a Linux version and now they are unsure it will even happen? Oh my, that's surprising!
I'll keep these things in mind for if the game does come to Linux.

Nothing strange , everything is marketing to take some money.After that they understand with just push the button will not have a easy Linux version on Unreal or CryEngine , someone need to sit to his ass and learn :).
