It seems the recent teaser of a new Linux & Mac port from Feral Interactive has seen the two platforms split, with Mac now getting it first.

When the "West Norwood" teaser was first announced, it was shown as coming to Linux & Mac at the same time. Now they each have an entry, with the Mac version due out first.

Now the Linux version is sat in the "Soon" section, with Mac in the "Very Soon" section:
Have you any idea what it is yet?

I have to say it's a shame. Not unexpected though, since Feral now have to work with a different graphics API for Mac. They also likely have two different teams working on Linux & Mac ports, so the Linux team might be encountering problems.

So from Feral: Linux isn't getting Bioshock Remastered, the Total War WARHAMMER 'Norsca' DLC is delayed for us and the XCOM 2: War of the Chosen expansion is not a day-1 Linux release either. Hopefully Feral will step up a bit for us, but I'm sure they have some surprises in store for us yet.

This year they've already given us some really fun games like HITMAN, Shogun 2 and DiRT Rally. I personally hope for some more great single-player games from them!

Has Feral actually said that we are not getting Bioshock Remastered?

I think that can be related with API's.

Since Vulkan is being used on Feral's Linux ports , games were published with both OpenGL and Vulkan because OpenGL is still doing good and most important ; it is more reliable when it comes to drivers. Especially with open source ones. Mesa Vulkan drivers are not there yet.

On the other hand , publishing a game to MacOS with OpenGL 4.1 with it's crappy drivers is really pointless. So probably they are going with Metal only.

Quoting: GuestAfaict Total War WARHAMMER 'Norsca' DLC and XCOM 2: War of the Chosen are delayed on macOS too, so it's not like only Linux is being let down.
Indeed, but the main point is still the same.

Edit: To clarify, about Linux having to wait around (regardless of the Mac position).

I think there is a strong chance by all accounts they were happy with the revenue that TR brought it so maybe

I just want to know what it is.

they probably profit more from mac than fron linux, but at least we can conclude that it's a game that still don't have a mac version, and i hope it's something big, the last UFOs didn't take so long to come.

Bioshock Mac and West Northwood Mac have 2 separate entries on the radar, so West Northwood can't be Bioshock. If Bioshock ever comes to linux, it isn't on the radar yet.
