Is there any release date in sight for this game? I'd like to buy it but don't buy any Early Access games.

"Many of you I'm sure will be extremely happy about this" You're not wrong, I'm really happy its been announced and can't wait for this and the Tomb Kings DLC.

Microsoft acquires GitHub for some loose change

NanobangFrom the beginning, everything Microsoft (why don't I see more penis jokes about their name?) has done has been not only about improving their bottom line by improving themselves and their product, but also damaging, killing, buying out their competition.. They have done nothing worthy of anyone's trust, but perhaps trusting Microsoft to fuck people over and take away every freedom they can.

I'm glad to see so many people here saying that they left or are going to leave Github, it's reassuring to see that the Linux and Foss community are aware that Github is no more. Everything Microsoft touches turns to shit. Profitable shit, but shit all the same.

This. Microsoft is not worthy of anyones trust.

PatolaAnd does anyone know about Total War: Warhammer II? When will it be out for Linux?
It's never been said it is coming.
It's almost implied. Total War: Warhammer 1 is available for Linux, other modern Total War titles like Total War: Attila and Total War: Shogun 2 too, and TW: Warhammer DLCs work on Total War: Warhammer II. The two games complement each other, and the developers even said something vague about plans for Linux:
"Will It be released on Mac and Linux from release?
Plans for Mac & Linux versions will be announced later in the year."

Total War: Warhammer I took about a year to get a Linux port, Total War: Warhammer II is less than a year old. So yeah, I still think it's possible they make a port.

I still have my fingers crossed for a port, I think it would make sense as Feral have already ported the first game and got the game engine to work on Linux, they could also port TW: WH3 to recoup some of the engine porting costs, plus theres all the DLC.

What Linux games are you looking forward to this year? Here's my top picks

I'm still hoping for TW: Warhammer 2, thats top of my list.

Insomnia the Ark looks really good, thats the top of my confirmed games list.

Cool, F1 2015 is the only Feral game that I've not bought, my collection is now complete!

Martian city-builder ‘Surviving Mars’ released with day-1 Linux support

I've not seen the text bug either (Linux Mint Cinnamon w/ Nvidia 970).

I'm really liking the game so far.

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia confirmed for Linux, from Feral Interactive

ZlopezI'm still waiting for Total War: Warhammer 2.
The first one is excellent as a game and as a port made by Feral.

This is still the good news.

Same here, TW: WH2 is the top of my wish list for this year. The first game is awesome and I would buy the second and the third and all the DLC in-between.

Surviving Mars now has another trailer and pre-orders open up with three different editions

MintedGamerThese great, entertaining, games get a Linux version and then Linux gamers find excuses not to buy them.
"This game isn't something I'd enjoy" seems like a damn good excuse to me. Paradox is a great developer, but our community might very well be too small to support their particular niche at this point. I do hope they'll manage to keep supporting Linux though.

Absolutely. No one should buy something that doesn't interest them. Supporting a publisher that does not create games that you are interested in is futile. (Note: I'm talking in general here, not specifically about Paradox or Surviving Mars.) The publishers creating items that you are interested in are the ones that should be supported.

The concept of being altruistic and supporting devs for supporting linux is a valid reason to buy something... But, just remember it goes both ways... How many devs are willing to support linux for a reason other than profit?

Of course I agree that if the game doesn't interest you then it doesn't warrant your hard earned money, but I'm talking about the smaller niggles that some talk about, no game will be perfect. There is another big discussion in the Stellaris article about supporting the developers that support us, if we don't buy the games they make for us (at little to no profit it seems), they'll simply stop making them, as a small community we have to vote with our dollars a little bit more to make the future viable and support the Devs that go out of their way to release quality, bug free games with Day 1 Linux support.
