New: Turns out it was a mistake going by their twitter replies to people.

@julek42 Nope, just the Mac App Store. The Feral Radar had ideas beyond its station and is now being admonished and updated accordingly.

— Feral Interactive (@feralgames) December 17, 2015

I'm not entirely sure if this is an accidental slip, or if Feral Interactive are preparing to release Medieval II: Total War on Linux, but their radar updated today to say Medieval II: Total War is out on Mac and Linux, but it's currently not.

I sent word to Feral about this with no reply currently. We will update the article if Feral confirm it's an old bit left in, or if it's really one of their hidden games that's coming for Linux. It was launched on the Mac app store today, so who knows what's going on.

This is taken from their publicly available radar:

Accident or not, I don't think the release picture is produced months ahead. There can (have been) delays and they cannot be 100% sure to finish the job, so I think it will release very soon.

its accident/mistake .. im 99% sure of it

don't get your hopes up

i have some sources why i think its a mistake :D

Anyway the game is not available for Mac either (just checked today)

But this matches their tip about the three persons and the king, appeared recently.

Thus it is available on the Mac App Store (as stated on their twitter).

Too bad, they confirmed it was a mistake :

"Nope, just the Mac App Store. The Feral Radar had ideas beyond its station and is now being admonished and updated accordingly."

However it's likely to come to Linux...

However this looks interesting :
"We wanted to treat our loyal Mac App Store pals. :) Don't worry, we have something special lined up for Linux early next year..."

I hope it is not only buzz...

Updated, it was a mistake Feral's end going by their twitter.

It's understandable that Mac gets better treatment than we do right now, but I really cannot wait for the day when we're equals.

Well, mac had more games before Steam was even announced for Linux. Actually, if you want to play Dying Light on mac, you will be disappointed.

Sad it was a mistake - it's a nice RTS game.

Well, it is a mistake in the sense that it is not available today on linux. However on Facebook they very much hinted that it was coming to linux too and that we just need to be a bit patient.
