Hello CA,
will the next Total War game be available for GNU/Linux?
Many companies are jumping on the boat these days, and besides the major effort put by Valve/Steam (they obviously want to leave Windows) we are getting other great games on GNU/Linux too, e.g. Europa Universalis 4 and the upcoming Tropico 5.
What about Total War?

    I don't know if the performance of the game will be the same as on Windows systems. But I would like to see it. :)

    I don't think it is done by Valve/Steam, but rather by the individual developers to adress a bigger audience.
    Personally I don't care if it gets released on other platforms as long as the game quality doesn't suffer.

    Valve (the company behind Steam) is pushing very hard to GNU/Linux. They have already converted all their main games (Half-life 2, Team Fortress 2. Dota 2, Left for Dead 2) and they are clearly trying to bring other developers with them.

    Valve has been working a lot with Nvidia, AMD and Ubuntu. Performance for Valve games is better on GNU/Linux than on Windows! :D

    Many other companies are jumping on the boat. Paradox Interactive has released EU4 and has committed to release all future games on GNU/Linux. I already own several great games running on Ubuntu, such as "Wargame: European Escalation", "Unity of Command", "FTL", "Trine 2", "The Book of Unwritten Tales".
    The upcoming games "Prison Architect" and "Planetary Annihilation" are already available on GNU/Linux as betas.

    When is CA joining the rest? An official word would be good :D

    Not likely. The best is to get WINE to work well enough.

    Just give it up wanna be "hackers", if you want to play games or use popular software get a windows partition, you end up using a windows virtual machine half of the time anyway hahahaha.

    I would like that. Games are one of the few things keeping me on Windows. I want the NSA to fiddle some time if they want sth and not to own the whole keychain.
