Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.
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

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.

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

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

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

this is cool, I've played it before back when it came out on windows. nothing like seeing a 2004 title get ported :P
I would rather see Total War: Warhammer to be honest. but I'm not complaining, I'll maybe give Dawn of War a test run since I already own it.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II works great in Wine already, so can't imagine they have to do much other than package and test it.

It's so frustrating that we keep seeing games that work perfectly in Wine already get ports months or years after the original release. If it was a day one release with a native port and also happened to work great in Wine, that I could understand. But when it's already been out for over a year and everyone knows it works great with Wine, what's the point?

Instead, I'd be happier if they spent some time porting the other Warhammer games that have known problems. eg.

Kill Team:

Space Marine:

Although probably Kill Team isn't too far away from working at this point, after having waited all this time.
