Speculation: Dying Light 2 may come to Linux after all

Posted by , | Views: 7,922

Dying Light 2, the massive new open-world game from Techland is looking awesome and going by SteamDB, it may actually come to Linux.

Get your heavy dose of salt ready, treat this as completely speculative until we get something harder. On SteamDB, earlier today Techland began adding more details. The interesting update is this, which specifically mentions "Added oslist – windows,linux" which seems to indicate it will support Linux. That is, unless it was done by accident…although you would think these things would be checked more than once before submitting, but you never can be too sure on such things.

You can see their fresh trailer below:

If this really does turn out to be true, 2020 is going to be fun. Dying Light is one of my favourite games, so to have the second supported on Linux would be pretty incredible.

I've emailed Techland to see if they are able to tell us what's happening. I will update you if/when I get anything or if the SteamDB page gets updated again to remove any mention of Linux.

Research? Hell, I lived it.
I had at least one AMD card back when it didn't run at all on Linux/Mesa, despite people seeing some success with GL shader version overrides and whatnot. Being forced to use Nvidia wasn't exactly an ideal solution, but it was at least a solution until the actual problem was identified and resolved.
IIRC; for a long time on the Store page, Techland even said that AMD cards were not supported. They are now, obviously.

I'll remain passionate about Dying Light, thank you very much.


(Not even going to respond to that pathetic 'personal attacks' accusation).

Did you just do exactly what you said you were not going to do in the same sentence? Tell me more about what you won't do next...

Seriously? You're not going to respond to his "pathetic" personal attacks "accusation?" And yeah, the accusation needs quotes because it wasn't an accusation, it was an objective statement of fact. You literally said they must be on drugs because they were gonna wait to get excited about Dying Light 2, because of WELL-PUBLICIZED issues regarding support for Dying Light 1 at release. Like, there WERE objectively legitimate support issues, that weren't resolved for a while. They never said that EVERYONE experienced them, only that THEY did, and therefore they would be waiting until the game comes out to see if the devs do a better job this time. That's literally the most reasonable thing they could have said. And you insulted them, acted like they were an idiot, and then proceeded to say they were on drugs. Are you kidding me?
