Metro Exodus to get a release date for Linux "soon" say 4A Games

By - | Views: 25,922

Recently, Metro Exodus ended its Epic Store exclusivity and Deep Silver (the publisher) confirmed it was heading to Linux. In a recent Reddit AMA (Ask me anything), the developer 4A Games mentioned the Linux port too.

In reply to a comment asking about macOS/Linux they said this:

[…] Throughout DLC development we've also been very busy working on various platforms for all of the Metro series. We recently confirmed the linux version and will reveal the launch date for that soon. […]

Really great to see it get confirmed multiple times now, strange though how they were so quiet on it before it hit Steam to no be so willing to talk about it when asked. Having all the Metro games on Linux is going to be great though, a full series for us. Seems it's had a warm reception on Steam too, with it now having a "Very Positive" user rating from well over ten thousand people.

Once they do talk about dates, we will let you know. Will you be picking up a copy when it's out for Linux officially?

You can check out Metro Exodus on Steam.

Quoting: stanIt’s funny seeing people angry about an Epic store exclusivity, but having no problem at all about the thousands of games that are exclusively on Steam. Not sure what the logic is.


The problem wasn't the pseudo timed EGS exclusivity; the game was available on Steam for a looong period of pre-purchase, and suddenly, puff...It was gone to that weird place...
EGS, unlike Steam, is not Linux friendly.

In addition to the above which was particularly egregious, Epic pays companies to force exclusivity. On Steam, devs or publishers just choose not to sell elsewhere, which is hardly Valve’s fault. They can add or move to other stores whenever they want. So you can be angry about that choice if you want, but although I suppose you could blame Steam for being too popular, it’s not like they’re purposely restricting the market.

Quoting: Liam DawePersonally, I would also love to see Feral do BL3 now their Vulkan tech is great. Aspyr really have let us down on BL2.

Considering the Mac version of BL3 is a first party port, if it comes to Linux it won’t be Feral/Aspyr.
The good thing about game development is that you can work at home... Another Linux depot activity detected.

Quoting: celphyPretty torn over here. EGS's exclusivity is a no-go for me.
But I'd like to support a Linux version ASAP.


I know I am late to this conversation, but someone just linked me to it. I would like to point out that although they took an EGS exclusivity, the previous Metro games have been released on Linux DRM-Free. If the next one does also then it would seem there is more good-will than bad in the company.

Weird I rarely hear people complain about Steam exclusivity.

That's because although some choose to do so, Valve has never paid anyone to keep it off other stores.
