I've put millions of hours into Master of Orion 2 both on Windows and in later years in DosBox on Linux, so to hear about a brand new Master of Orion was quite exciting. I've been following it for a while, and it looks like it might get a Linux release.
I noticed on SteamDB they added Linux to the supported "oslist", that's a great sign but remember this is completely unconfirmed right now. I have reached out to the developer to get confirmation, and will update you all if I get any.
It sounds like it will launch into Early Access rather than be a full and finished game. No word yet on the date.
