Techland haven't decided if Dying Light 2 will be on Linux

Posted by , | Views: 19,751

With the announcement and trailer of Dying Light 2 [Official Site] shown off during E3, we reached out to Techland to see if the sequel will be on Linux.

Considering the original is one of my favourite games, I was hoping they would eventually confirm it for Linux again. Sadly though, they haven't yet made a decision.

Here's what they said to us when we emailed them:

About your question: I am afraid it is too early to give the definitive answer yet as our development team is working hard on Dying Light 2. Confirmed platforms are Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, but knowing that we have devoted Dying Light community on Linux, this version is definitely in their consideration. 

So if you do want it on Linux, you should probably let them know.

You can see some gameplay below:

Ok... Wow. Just, wow. That was visuals to die for.

Linux port or not, I'm gonna play this game.

I thought that by now, devs would have started programming with multiplatform in mind from the very start.
Not doing so, shows where MAC and GNU/Linux are at.

I seriously hope DL 2 will be on Linux. Loved the first one

They really should be starting out thinking of Linux.
It will be much harder to add it later on from what I've seen of other games that just decide to add Linux support in as a topping.

Ah come on! The said they were releasing it on PC. I have two PC's: a MacOS PC and a Linux PC.

May be YT's compression but cant say it's that impressive tbh.

Kinda moot though if it don't come to Linux ;(

Will this be using Vulkan do we know ?

Dying Light is the most captivating game I have ever played, and I also tremendously enjoyed the DLCs. I really do hope for a Linux port. It's an instant buy for me.

If they really want us it's better to ask a real Linux professionals like Aspyr and Feral to port since their half-baked products didn't followed FOSS tendencies and neither DyingLitch nor DeadIsland it's working with latest Mesa, I own both, I love play both but without Techland wish to fix my money turned garbage because it's no more playable, if someone here have some kind of direct contact with them please send my advice to them
