This is fantastic news, Life is Strange 2 is confirmed to be coming to Linux with the porting from Feral Interactive once again. This has replaced the "AURORA" teaser on their Port Radar.
From the press release just sent to us:
Feral Interactive today announced that Life is Strange 2, the next instalment in the much loved narrative adventure series, is coming to macOS and Linux in 2019. Originally developed by DONTNOD Entertainment and published by Square Enix on Windows and console, this is the much-anticipated sequel to 2015's BAFTA Award-winning Life is Strange.
After a tragic and mysterious incident in Seattle, brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz run away from home and head for Mexico. Life on the road is tough, and responsibility for his much younger brother soon brings Sean to the realisation that the decisions he makes on their journey south will impact their lives forever...
Sadly though, we will have to wait until 2019. The most likely reason, is Feral waiting until the game is essentially finished with all episodes out. I can understand why this will be an issue for some, since you will miss out on the discourse and hype surrounding the release of each episode. Hopefully it will be as soon after the final episode's release as possible. I'm glad they're announcing this quite early though, hopefully it means more people will hold off on buying it to support their continued Linux ports. Given the quality of their ports and their top-notch support, I'm happy to hold off on a single-player game.
The news comes not long after Feral also confirmed Total War: THREE KINGDOMS. It seems like their previous teaser that mentioned Thursday this week, was simply about reflecting on these announcements.
