Dishonored 2 Linux support is only a pipe dream

Dishonored 2 isn’t even officially out yet and the sequel to the critically acclaimed original is already stepping on some toes. On top of the recent problems regarding the 9 GB day one patch, the eagerly awaited title also lacks Linux support.

The majority of PC gamers run Windows and aren’t affected by the developers’ decision to skip Linux support. However, the small percentage of Dishonored fans who do use Linux feel completely left out. They made their feelings public on a number of platforms including the Steam forums.

So $59.99 and no linux support, for real? +1 please make a linux port or at least try to make it run on wine!

However, among the frustrated and angry Linux supporters, there were a few users who recognized the unpopularity of their preferred operating system and didn’t blame the developer for not putting much effort into something that’s not very popular.

I like Linux (Mint) myself, but seriously…only a handful of people plays games on Linux so I doubt they will spend time/resources on a Linux build. And everybody (99.9% anyway) have a Windows OS on their PC. So not likely… Just… don’t use Linux if you are a gamer, it’s just stupid

Unless Dishonored 2‘s developers suddenly decide to postpone the release of the game so that they can implement Linux compatibility – which is extremely unlikely – the future doesn’t look too bright for the Linux users who want to follow Corvo and Emily’s new adventures.

Windows PC users can go to Steam or the Windows Store and purchase the game for $59.99.
