Interesting movement in Rockstar games
kellerkindt 9 Aug, 2015
I just noticed, that there is a movement in a lot of Rockstar games,
even on rather old ones. A new depot ('beta') just popped up.
On one game for itself, that wouldn't be any kind of interesting,
since it could be just a patch. But seeing this on four games,
which haven't seen any changes for months...

Maybe I am just getting too hyped, seeing other AAA games coming to linux :P

New 'beta'-depot on:

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City
https://steamdb.info/app/12220/history/

Grand Theft Auto IV
https://steamdb.info/app/12210/history/

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
https://steamdb.info/app/12120/history/

Max Payne 3
https://steamdb.info/app/204100/history/



Probably just a normal patch...
Grand Theft Auto V
https://steamdb.info/app/271590/history/

But there is another entry in SteamDB for GTA V that isn't
publicly accessible yet:
https://steamdb.info/app/379480/history/

Could be the mac port like it was done with GTA:SA,
which is listed as separate game: https://steamdb.info/app/12250/history/

I would be surprised, but I imagine it's for Windows 10 issues.

I really can't see any new depots on any of the links; where exactly do I look?

GTA IV is still a mess on Windows; its only chance of redemption (?!) might be that a porting studio actually fixes it, and gets rid of GFWL, similar to how Feral tweaked KotOR II.
Joking aside, I wouldn't be *too* surprised if the GTA III-series makes it to Linux at some point; considering that they even have Android ports already......

Like Liam said, I guess it's Windows 10 related.
Personally I loved Max Payne 3, I didn't play GTA V, but because it uses the same engine for the hero behaviour and weapon selection I know it is very good game for sure (and it was selling incredibly) but GTA IV is not a great game. Despite obvious issues like performance of the initial port (from console to Windows), I don't like the plot and main character is little bit weird from my point of view.
Anyway, just as a side note, I wish all of us, linux gamers, ports of Max Payne 3 and GTA V. Even if it would happen in 2016, it would be a great surprise.
