No, Final Fantasy XIII-2 Probably Isn't Coming To Linux

Posted by , | Views: 12,638
Sorry to be the bringer of bad news, but it seems some Linux websites are claiming that Fantasy XIII-2 will come to Linux. Sadly, this is not actually the case.

I don't particularly like posting "x game won't come", but when other sites report on it wildly and we get lots of people asking what's up then it becomes a necessity.

The reports are based around Final Fantasy XIII-2 popping up on SteamDB with this:
Quote250823/config/oslist: linux
250823/depotfromapp: 250820
250823/maxsize: 26528677
250823/name: OpenVR Linux

You may see a small download for it if you own it, but it's due to OpenVR, nothing more.

The same has happened for a few other titles that use "OpenVR" as it seems to trigger the Linux section, and it's the same on Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 for just one example.

Heck, even SteamDB is giving them the status of "Fake? Only OpenVR". Don't believe everything you read folks.

Now, back to your regular scheduled programming! Article taken from

LOL I haven't really heard about that rumour before....
Well, I am not a big FF fan anyway.... back to wishing The Witcher trilogy on Linux instead

the only final fantasy game worth having anyway is probably 7th, overly hyped man milked franchise.

I stopped caring about FF a long time ago.

Ah man, who cares. Last good FF was IX, it's just been big-budget rubbish with no substance since then.

The whole "FF7 remake trolling" thing actually reminded me to replay FF7 and I'm just getting annoyed by the pixelated backgrounds and that I can't swap them out for better ones without losing achievements (the only thing Squeenix bothered to add) so keep feeling I would have been better off keeping my money and just pirating it.

For them to support Linux it would have to be a completely different company.

I wouldn't complain if it did come to Linux (the more 'big' games, the better!), but I'll not cry myself to sleep if it doesn't. I'm not a fan of modern Final Fantasy games.

Thank you very much for clearing things up. I was a litte bit disappointed that other linux news site reported rumors only based on that "OpenVR Linux" entry. Doesn't really seem to be an indicator for ported games until now.

I played Final Fatasy 1 (NES) to 4 (SNES) and then lost interest... The series felt like going in any directions and yet none... But it might just be me who didn't understand the concept, at the time...

Maokeithe only final fantasy game worth having anyway is probably 7th, overly hyped man milked franchise.
The 6th is so much better. But indeed Final Fantasy quality has been very poor for quite some time now.

I think I would buy it if it would come to Linux

As if! Some sites actually reported that??
