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!

m2mg2Just to clarify, has Feral actually said Bioshock remastered isn't coming to Linux?

I still haven't seen a statement to that effect. Just the generic, we have nothing to report on Linux at this time.

Which generally means No

That provided absolutely zero additional information. Thanks.

That would be the trademark of Feral. They never answer anything that they haven't announced before. It's *always* "we haven't announced anything about that yet. if that changes ...".

I understand that. That wasn't what I was referring to. I am familiar with the process. I asked whether they had said more than that, like "we will not be releasing a Linux version". Being that the article stated they aren't porting Bioshock rematastered to Linux I was looking for actual confirmation and not the standard "we have no information to give at this time". If you ask them about a port they "are" working on before they authorize confirmation you will get the same type of response, so "which generally means no" is a worthless response. I was indicating whitewolfe80's comment provided absolutely no new information.

They did not. Just the aforementioned standard reply.

rustybroomhandle"West Norwood" now seems to have vanished.

Maybe it was simply the Norsca DLC.

I will quote them:
„The Feral Radar got distracted by a herd of geese. We're trying to fix it before it spots the incoming flock of ducks.“

So it is not the Norsca DLC.

appetrosyanThat said, if the corporate world finally decides on a universal Package format, It'd make our lives easier.

If the "corporate world" decided on a universal package format, you can guarantee no Linux distro would ever adopt it...

Canonical Red Hat and Novell are all corporations, and they set the two major package standards: deb and rpm. The two camps will never agree, but if they would say "We're doing Flatpaks and Debs" Linux will pretty much collapse into those two, with a few minor exceptions.

Y'see, that's weird: you say you're familiar with the process, but then ask if they've said more than that. But as Ehvis notes, the process is they will never say more than that. The closest Feral have ever come to saying "no" is "we haven't announced anything". Kind of frustrating really, but you can see why they do it that way. I guess anything can change at the drop of a hat in the Publishing/Developing world of games.

When was the last Feral release? I'm itching for a new, big announcement! I wish I was into Total Warhammer...
