Seems like Feral Interactive may have a few surprises for Linux in 2020

Posted by , | Views: 27,934

Porting studio Feral Interactive [Official Site] have already given Linux a lot of games and it sounds like more are coming.

While this year they've already released Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, a Vulkan beta for Shadow of Mordor, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS and DiRT 4 plus big updates/expansions to Company of Heroes 2 and Total War: WARHAMMER II. Still to come is Life is Strange 2, which Feral previously teased to arrive sometime soon.

After that, we already know Feral is porting Total War Saga: TROY but what about more games, is that the end of it for Linux? Going by their replies to people on Twitter, like this one "We may have a few Linux games planned for 2020... ;)" they seem to indicate there may be some surprises for us next year.

That's good news of course, since Steam Play/Proton was an obvious worry that they might stop porting. There's tons of games that are completely broken with Steam Play and plenty that perform really badly that Feral could certainly do their porting magic with. Actual support would be good too and Feral certainly know what they're doing.

What game would you like to see Feral port to Linux and support?

Hat tip to NuSuey.

Feral are into Switch and Android/iOS now, so I think they use Linux as a testing ground for porting games to other platforms. It probably means they won't abandon Linux even if it's not profitable.
I'd like them to port Insurgency: Sandstorm or Resident Evil 3 remake. Apparently RE2 doesn't work on Linux with the newest Ryzen CPUs, so I cannot play it since I've got a new computer. I'm afraid RE3 wouldn't run either (RE7 does work though). It also would be ironic if Feral ported Halo: MCC.

In my opinion any AAA that's not turn-based or racing game.

What CPUs specifically? Mine is a Ryzen 7 2700 and it (RE2 Remake) works perfectly.

Being realistic, I would like to see ported by Feral the last 3 Codemasters games:
-DIRT Rally 2
-F1 2019
-GRID (2019)

Please Feral, make it possible!

I would love to get native support for the upcoming Empire of Sins. Cyberpunk 2077 would be a great one to have too! Also getting Borderlands 3 would be the cherry on the topping.

Cyberpunk 2077 would be a nice thing.

All of these are singleplayer or co-op so they probably won't need anti-cheat.

Still want FINAL FANTASY XV, this one seems pretty hard to get running on linux, which may make it a good choice.

Maybe Dying Light 2? I think i remember something about the studio not having the same people that ported it to linux, could be asking feral for help there.

Really just hoping for something that isn't strategy based, i tried to like those type of games, but never quite did. I also feel like i'll have enough racing games.

edit: Right, Metro Exodus would be great
