    Default The Witcher 2 Might Be Out For Linux Real Soon

    Phoronix: The Witcher 2 Might Be Out For Linux Real Soon

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, while first released for Windows gamers in 2011, might see its release in the very near future for Linux gamers...

    I'm going to guess that it will be released when GOG start selling Linux games. Probably with a nice sale

    The game's market is really driven on the latest buzz, so if a game has already been released for more than a few months, don't expect to sell it on your shop sales shelf or online, unless it's highly discounted or so good that people seek it out and that usually this happens with specialities like RPG's and cult based titles.

    Woohoo, a nice reason to play the arc I missed in the first playthrough

    That would make sense. If this is true, then there are good chances for Witcher 3 on Linux, too.

    The Witcher 2 is my favourite game. I can't describe how much I'm happy to read this news

    Default YES!

    This is fantastic news! Maybe now I can finally beat the game. I'm still less than half way through (as far as I can tell). I don't mind playing for a bit here and there, but when I have to reboot my entire machine, lose all my terminals that I'm doing work in, etc, it rarely makes sense for me to do so. I'm sure a lot of people here at Phoronix can relate.

    I bought the non-DRM version from gog.com, but I'm more than happy to pay for it again on Steam to get Linux support (and to support games of this caliber coming to linux). I'll even buy 1 or 2 copies for linux-using friends.
