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!

Thanks to MaCroX95 in our Discord for pointing it out.

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.

m2mg2I 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".

They did not. Just the aforementioned standard reply.

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...

Just 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.

I am aware that in most cases that response indicates a no. But "which generally means no", does not actually answer the question. "They have not, but the statement they released generally means no" would have been an answer to the question along with some additional information which may or may not be helpful (depending on whether the reader is or is not aware of how Feral generally answers these types of inquiries). So yes, I understand the process and understand that the response given was not an answer to the question.

Elvis on the other gave a very helpful response.

Which generally means No

Well, okay, just to clarify then: you will never see Feral saying that Bioshock Remaster isn't coming to Linux.

Ever.

Because, who knows? It might happen. Some day. And on that day, Feral will announce it. Until then, vague, indirect deflection is all you'll get.

Actually I doubt that it will, at least not soon. I even said that in my last post.

Edit: Oops, I thought I did but looking back at it I left it off. I intended to say I don't think they are porting it.

So what was that? I was hoping for Rise of Tomb Raider.
