Sadly it looks like Shadow Warrior 2 won't be a day-1 Linux release

With no announcement anywhere the SteamOS information from the Shadow Warrior 2 Steam page has vanished. They previously had a SteamOS icon ready and SteamOS system requirements, both of which have just—gone.

It's pretty sad news, because this indicates it won't be a day-1 Linux release.

I hope no one pre-ordered, because you might want to look at cancelling it until there's some clear information as to what is going on. That, plus, pre-ordering is dumb.

I've tweeted and emailed them today, so hopefully I will be able to give you some sort of update on this. There's also this forum post asking about it by another user.

I'm personally sad as I seriously wanted to give it a try and with no communication from the developer (like we wouldn't notice it suddenly vanishing), it's a bit of a sketchy situation right now. Why silently remove it without a simple announcement anywhere?

About the game
Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend.

Depressing, I was(am) really eager to play this game and despite the multitude of AAA disappointments that have struck this year I really thought FWH would deliver. Still I hope it´s just a temporary snafu.

EDIT:
My bad, I linked SteamDB for the first game.

Quoting: hardpenguinThe Steam depots are in place, so I don't think it is cancelled or anything like that ;) And a delay is not a tragedy for minor platforms.

Well all know games that have depots that we are waiting on though, having a depot doesn't really mean all that much any more, indicator yes, but with them silently removing Linux info :(

The depot information does not appear to be too useful yet. Linux/Mac depots are half the size of the Windows one. And the game does not appear to be updated on Steam yet. So I doubt there is active beta testing going on through steam at this point.

Who buys games on day one anyways? They are usually buggy, require multiple patches, and has content locked behind paid DLC and season passes. Plus, there are Steam and GOG sales in addition to G2A and Kinguin.

People still use G2A and Kinguin after the amount of crap they pull? Come on, don't advertise their use here.

It might be delayed but at least it won't be delayed as long as the first game was.

I emailed Devolver Digital almost a week ago now about this (well, about the lack of any mention of Linux on GOG's store page) and this is what they told me:

QuoteThere won't be a Linux version at launch, similar to the first game. Sorry but the team does plan on having one and it will be DRM-free as well.
