Sadly sometimes people go on autopilot, and the Publisher of Two Worlds II and Raven's Cry has confirmed to me they didn't read my previous emails correctly, so Two Worlds II is not coming to Linux, but it might be, confused? I am.

We aren't entirely sure what really happened, as the below will probably confuse you as well.

Even though the same person confirmed Two Worlds II via email multiple times by name (here and here), the developer mentioned this about my most recent request for information:
QuoteMy mistake. Because everyone asks for Raven’s Cry I did not read your Question correctly.

Raven’s Cry for Linux will be released on Friday. Not Two Worlds II. For TW2 we have no plans for a Linux version.


That doesn't change that they did confirm it twice by name to us, so once queried on the fact that they mentioned Two Worlds II by name multiple times to us before, they said this:
QuoteYes. That is correct. TW2 is in the queue – but at the moment everyone is only working on Raven’s Cry.

I only made a mistake in my eMail to you, because you asked me for the release date and I thought you mean Raven’s Cry like the other 100+ People who ask me every day.

The very previous email, as quoted, said they had "no plans", and this email now says it's "in the queue". It got pretty confusing by this point, and I'm not honestly sure what's going on. I feel like a yoyo right now.

Although, the last email seemed more positive:
QuoteNo plans means, that we have no concrete release date.

Please understand, that everyone here is only working on the Raven’s Cry project – everything else is currently totally unimportant.

Although, to be perfectly honest, I am a little sceptical right now due to the previous email conversation confusing back and forth talk.

Still, at least we get Raven’s Cry right which should be great? Shame about Two Worlds II though, but you can count on us to chase-up developers when they are silent on ports. We try, for you, the gamer willing to part with your hard earned cash.

We always appreciate developers speaking with us, and we have no hard feelings here at all, but we firmly being open with your audience is important.

The developer seems to be removing links to our articles in their Steam forum too. Seems a bit silly to cover up your mistakes rather than learn from them. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

That's not good, the only 2 games i've seen "coming soon" that i wanted to play again as i dumped windows over a year ago was Two Worlds 2 and Bio Shock Infinite, The games i really wanted to play on Linux and now Two Worlds is a no go? and Bio Shock Infinite looks like its following Two Worlds as it has been removed from my steam client list of games for SteamOS/Linux, And i'm not alone in Bio Shock Infinite being removed from steam for SteamOS/Linux.

I don't think TopWare knows WTF is going on with their own games. They just delayed Raven's Cry AGAIN, by only 4 days this time. Really? What can they accomplish in four days? Will it be delayed again on Friday? I don't like to place bets, but I wouldn't be shocked.

I have wanted Two Worlds II since the first word of a port leaked out. I'm just going to assume it will never happen now, and move on. If I get surprised one day, so be it.

It shouldn't have ever been listed in Linux to begin with, since the port isn't ready yet. It's coming. Don't panic.

Well, the graphics for Raven's Cry don't look cutting edge, not too keen on the animations in the trailer, but the ambiance seems to be there...Good gameplay can be the difference between a bad game and a great game. The soundtrack sounds great, I wonder if they managed to get the Dubliners for the score. Big premium price, I might wait till it goes down to a Pony, or even better Mussels a Plenty.

As for two worlds two, maybe we need to wait for two world three ;) Still hoping to see it come over. Now if Bethesda could also hear the voice of reason...

I think the lesson we need to learn, is that everygame will not get ported to Linux, but game are STILL being ported which is great.

Well, they did say it was happening. The lesson, then, is: don't believe it until it's real.

Thanks for the effort Liam, I admit I've been sitting here for the past 2 hours refreshing the page hoping for any news regarding this game.

I'm not very picky on graphic details but if Raven's Cry has good gameplay I'll buy it just for the native Linux port alone.

Actually, I had a look at the ingame graphics and they are actually better than the grainy and stuttering trailer animations... This is a good turn of events...

Would be nice if the release for Two Worlds 2 - whenever planned - would be also for GOG and not only for some DRM-platforms out there!

To me this communication from the devs suggests they are knee deep in their current project, and can't begin to think of anything else. Releasing a game is a very stressful, emotional and time-consuming affair. I say revisit them after Raven's Cry has been released...

I'm sure it would come out also on GOG, The pattern goes like this usually: Game goes in beta on Steam > Final version to everyone else. I don't mind this procedure as long as I get the final version.

Meanwhile, a cool indie dev releases their port for Gravity Ghost 30 days ahead of schedule.

While it's sad to hear this about Two Worlds, I'm kind of steering away from the mentality "oh, wish that was ported" when I can grab some of these clever lesser-known titles almost immediately at their launch date.
