A recent Polygon article that covered Valve's new hardware has some information from Valve, and it's not entirely clear, but it looks like Just Cause 3 could come to Linux.
To quote Valve from the piece:
Erik Johnson, ValveThe range of games is triple-A titles like Just Cause 3 that are multiplatform, all the way back to games like System Shock 2 and Half-Life. The idea that we'd be playing those games in the living room with a controller was not something we had ever considered. We had to solve all the problems there.
Robin Walker, ValveWe talked to Avalanche Games to see if we could show Just Cause 3, which is not out yet.
They don't specifically mention SteamOS, but this is an article talking about the Steam Machines and SteamOS, and it's under the Games section. It's easy to assume they mean it will see a SteamOS/Linux release, but it's too unclear to be solid.
I'm pretty excited at the possibility of it, as the game looks fantastic, but for all we know they could have been testing out the Streaming ability at this point. It would be a huge title to have though, that's for sure and I would personally buy it out of interest if it does come out for us.
