Two Worlds II Action RPG Will Apparently Still Be Ported To Linux

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.

About the game (Official)
A perfect mix of flexibility, creativity and state-of-the-art technology "Two Worlds II" is a perfect blend of classic and innovated RPG features, atmosphere, and technology. A complex quest system and an exciting main story draw you into the world of Antaloor, made richer by secondary quest scenarios.

Rich gameplay and engaging atmosphere propel the story and captures attention, promising danger and exploration throughout the many quests and video sequences. Enhanced AI, balancing standards, experienced authors, an active combat system, the innovative DEMONS™ magic management, and the PAPAK™ alchemy system guarantee enjoyment for new and experienced gamers. An artistic system of attack and defense moves has been integrated into the game. Parries and changing hit results creates a real opportunity for tactics and excitement, as the AI engage in combat and employ strategy of their own.

The game also offers extreme flexibility in the weapon and armament design possibilities. The cornerstone at the heart of this feature is the newly created 'CRAFT'™ tool. Players can break down items into their basic materials and create new unique items. "Two Worlds II" is also graphically superb. The powerful GRACE™ engine offers technological highlights such as an unlimited number of dynamic light sources, 24 bit HDR post-processing, and Real Eye Adaptation. It will drastically reduce loading times, improve general game performance, and enable full gameplay with only moderate hardware requirements.

You can find Two Worlds II on Steam, but don't buy it until the Linux version arrives. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I look forward to the day when "We will first do Mac ports" will become "What the heck is Mac?".

There already seem to be games released only for Windows and Linux, at least in the beginning.
I'm all fine with ports for all three of course, but still looks like a nice sign for Linux gaming.

This is probably way too late to make any money, ain't it?
I've got a bit of fear that such late ports will hurt Linux sale reputation...

It would only hurt our "reputation" if they:
1) Thought it was going to make them rich
and
2) Told everyone it wasn't worth it

We all know Linux ports of old games isn't going to make a lot of money.

That is true. However in the same thread saying about Mac/Linux ports, Raidor (apparently a Topware employee) says that most of developers stayed in the company .

On the other hand, Topware (the publisher) is not really reliable or quick in their promises. They promised us Wine wrappers for their older titles 2 years ago and we havent seen these to this day (well, at least not on Linux, because they released a Mac Wine wrapper for JA2: Wildfire and Septerra Core last month. Raidor stated, that these will come to Linux too, eventually.

We first port some of our older titles to OSX and will continue with Linux.

Still, would love to see their games introducing Linux support.

I would prefer the day when "we may port to Windows" or "What the heck is Windows?" becomes a reality.

Two worlds series are known for their questionable DRM (look it up). I wonder if they plan to use it on Linux as well. I would definitely not buy it then.
