While Metro Exodus was exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a while, it later went live on Google Stadia (which is Debian Linux) and today it's finally available on Steam. It also appears to be coming to the Linux desktop with news on that due soon.

A post on the Metro Exodus Steam forum titled "Linux Version?" that's been open since 2018 got a reply today, from the publisher Deep Silver:

We have of course reached out to Deep Silver ourselves to confirm this as well, however it would be weird for them to seek this topic out themselves to confirm it if this wasn't true. So it looks like we're getting Linux support for Metro Exodus!

Since it was ported to Stadia, it's not too much of a stretch to jump to desktop Linux on Steam. A few different libraries here and there but it's still Linux. The developer, 4A Games, did also bring the previous two Metro titles to Linux so it certainly would be nice to see them all available.

For now, you can check out Metro Exodus on Steam. However, as usual it's worth holding onto your monies until it's actually out. Once we have more information, we will share it.

Hat tip to Xakep.

Update: Deep Silver replied to our email and simply said "Yes this is correct.".

That doesn't help to reduce my backlog but it will be an instant buy then it's available on Linux

OMG time really flies! Seems like only recently that Epic store made an appearance. But apparently their timed exclusives stared to expire already... it came to me as a surprise.

In any case, I'll get the game when it will have a Linux version and I'll have an RTX card.
While I was quite angry with them signing an exclusivity deal, making a Linux version is enough for me to change my mind and gladly buy the game.

Comandante ÑoñardoSadly, the Steam regional price for Argentina is 4 times more expensive than the Xbox Game Pass version.

In Brazil is 10 US$ (44 R$)

This news brings me slightly hope for a Borderlands 3 Linux Version.

Btw when does it come out on Steam? Some times in April right?

Awesome! In a "complete" edition with all DLCs?

If it's the case, I will hold off from buying it in the current sale (40% off) until it's out.

Wow. I hadn't thought of that.

While this Metro news is truly surprising and awesome, Borderlands 3 would be even better!

Fuck... okay maybe if they do those things I might forgive them and actually buy their new shit.

Lets be honest we all know what Operating System they are using in the Metro.
