Good news everyone, it looks like the SteamDB info from before might actually be true about Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II coming to Linux. The latest information points to it being from Feral Interactive.

I was notified about this in our IRC today (thanks mirv):

You may now begin throwing your money at your screen (please don't buy it yet). Disclaimer as always: SteamDB is by no means official or actual confirmation, but good supporting evidence.

I have reached out to Feral Interactive for comments.

I hope it's true, as it's yet another title that would excite me as an RTS fan. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

XCOM2? Someone did a lazy copy-paste.

No! Wait for release so Feral actually gets paid, dammit.

It was meant as a figure of speech which obviously didn't translate well, I have edited it.

Neat, it doesn't work too well in WINE for me.

Just curious - what's your setup? Works perfectly for me, but I'm using Mesa with gallium-9 enabled.

The single player is actually fine, and the game runs well, but multiplayer disconnects after a few minutes.

Ah ok, that I've not tried. I had multiplayer problems under windows though: full game crash at the end of a session.


On a different note, given the game's age and amount of times it's been on (heavily discounted) sale, I wouldn't expect crazy GNU/Linux sales of this game. I've bought pretty much everything there is for it, but I'll find a way to support Feral if they do release it.

again good job Feral but one question Will it be Cross-platform multiplayer ?

Me too, especially since it doesn't work with wine.
