I sincerely hope none of you pre-ordered Street Fighter V on the promise of the Linux version, as it has shown yet again how silly it is. Street Fighter V is now officially late.

The only word we had on the release was from Steam:
QuoteAttention Steam users and Street Fighter V players! Our development team is working closely with Valve engineers to bring the full Street Fighter V experience onto the SteamOS platform.

This will be a free update to all Street Fighter V Steam players and will be released this Spring. More news will be shared soon, so stay tuned.

That was back in February, so not only have we been given no new details ("soon"?), but the release window of Spring is officially behind us.

This is another port that was getting help from Valve, like Rocket League, Street Fighter V is now late. They have both joined our Unreleased Ports list on the Wiki (if we are missing some, add them!).

Why is it everything Valve touches gets delayed somehow? Are they really that unfocused?

Shame, wanted to play it myself, but it hasn't been reviewing well overall which is also a bit of a shame.

Sidenote: I know some of you don't like seeing the repeating message of delayed ports, but it's important to keep track. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Pre-ordering a digital product is simply loaning the company money. Sometimes with a worthless gift in return. It still baffles me why anybody would do that.

There were a few rare occasion where I would have considered it, but instead those companies chose to finish the game before asking for money.

I'd have waited for one more day until the Steam Summer Sale starts since there's a chance, albeit tiny, that it'll be released then alongside with a nice discount.

But yeah, general message as usual, never buy something on a promise. First it doesn't count as a Linux sale weakening the platform and second it might never get released..

I have little hope but may be it will also come with Linux/SteamOS support.

Beware that if you read this you might realise that there is now very little chance that HL3 ever come out.

Personnally I only very seldomly buy preorders. I did so for Cities Skylines and some other Paradox games, but recently that's all.
