Recently I put out an article about Blitzkrieg 3 coming to Linux. The Linux icon is prominently featured in their latest trailer, but after speaking to them on Facebook it seems it still has no ETA.

Their reply on Facebook was a bit confusing.

Initially they had no idea what trailer I was talking about until I linked it to them where I got this response:
QuoteI have no idea what trailer did you mean, but yes, we have plans on Linux version. But no ETA's now


And now:
Quotebecause we have plans on Linux we want, but i can't say date


Good to know they do definitely have plans for the Linux version. I just find it really odd to have no ETA on a Linux version, but include the platform icon anyway. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Pffft, hat isn't needed. The tactic worked flawlessly with Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Carmageddon remake, why stop now? The old FOSS rule says: release early, release often; the new rule is: announce early, release never. Don't forget to grab the cash tho'!

Well, anyway, not everyone is bad. Even those who postponed (read: cancelled) the Linux version not necessarily are scammers. They just need to be open about issues with other platforms and post updates on their progress if there any or lack thereof. And of course, refund those who paid for the Linux version.

"Coming soon to GOG.com" Here's what's going to happen:

1. Blitzkrieg 3 releases for Windows on GOG
2. Blitzkrieg 3 gets ported to Linux
3. GOG never ever adds the Linux port to their store

It's good that we have an effective tactic to combat such means of deception: don't buy before it's out.

Funny, the first thought I had after watching the Blitzkrieg 3 trailer was that I'd rather have a new Commandos game than another traditional clash of forces RTS.

Thinking about a Commandos-like game, what I'd really love to see would be a new and modern Desperados for Linux. :)
