Recently announced by Paradox Interactive, it looks like Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 might actually get Linux support.
I held off on writing anything originally, as while Paradox do often have Linux support in games they publish it's not always the case. This particular game is being developed by Hardsuit Labs, a developer who Paradox Interactive acquired a minority stake in last year.
However, thanks to our eagle-eyed contributor BTRE, it was spotted on SteamDB adding Linux (and Mac) to the "oslist". This is not confirmation though to be clear, this has happened before with no Linux version released and at times even done by accident. Paradox didn't reply to my initial emails when the game was first announced, so I've reached out again now through different channels.
