Good news folks, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem which was previously named Umbra is sitll coming to Linux the developers confirmed to me.
Their email to me today was short, sweet, and to the point:
The Linux version of the game is still planned. It just won't be ready for the first alpha release.
I haven't seen them mention Linux for months, so it's nice to see them actually reply to me. Too many developers go silent about Linux.
The game was crowdfunded via Kickstarter some time ago reaching $406,979. Their Kickstarter prominently listed Linux as a platform (even in the title on Kickstarter), so it's pleasing to hear it's still planned.
