Surprise, F1 2017 for Linux appears on SteamDB

Posted by , 25 August 2017 at 9:38 pm UTC / 8623 views

Suprised? No? Okay. After Feral Interactive [Official Site] directly asked to see a demand for F1 2017 and then the official F1 2017 twitter account had a little leak, F1 2017 for Linux has turned up on SteamDB.

Now this has popped up on SteamDB (it's a long one, but here's a glimpse):

600621/name: Linux - F1 2017 Binary

There's a lot more to indicate it, so it may very well end up coming to Linux. I bet there's going to be a number of happy faces in our comments if it does get officially announced.

The game has just released today with Windows/Mac support, with the Mac version done by Feral.

Will you buy a copy if it does come to Linux?

The reviews for the game are quite good, if it comes to linux it will be a great addition and I'll also buy it!

Codemasters create great games, I LOVE GRID 1 (it's my favorite race game ever), GRID 3 is ok, Dirt 2 was awesome, and I enjoyed F1 Race Stars. But I'm not a huge fan of their simulators (Dirt Rally was frustrating to me, and my cpu sucks in Open GL).

I want to support Feral, but I would be happier with Dirt 4...

Yeeeees. Vulkan please!

Hmm. As I said before, although I'm a huge fan of driving games and of F1, the combination of the two just never seems to grab me in the way you'd expect. Never say never, though. It does look good.

Must be an error. That has happened before right?

So they managed to port the game more or less overnight after asking if people wanted? Including securing permissions?

That or they decided to port that game LOOOOOOONG before asking in public.

What's more likely?
