You might not remember, but we had the Publisher of Two Worlds II confirm to us multiple times that Two Worlds II would come to Linux, and then things got confusing, but now one of the actual developers has confirmed it will happen.
When asked about it on the Steam forum, a Reality Pump Studios developer said this:
QuoteYes. In June we will have a new port team. We will first do Mac ports and after this Linux ports of all games possible.
It's better than the confusing answers we had from their Publisher last time, and seems more solid. Still, that doesn't sound like it will come any time soon, but it's still good news.
