After Project CARS, the latest popular PC game title that's been officially confirmed as heading to Linux for SteamOS is Total War: Rome II.

Last month I relayed news that Total War: Rome II would be ported to Linux and the game developers would then evaluate its success in determining whether to bring additional Total War games to Linux.

Total War: Rome 2 is a stratgy game from Creative Assembly and published by Sega. Total War: Rome II was released for Windows in September and was already declared a success and remains very popular with gamers.

After last month's news, it's no surprise to see that today the game is confirmed for Linux at SteamPowered.com. It looks like the strategy game will make its Linux premiere in early 2014. "ROME II will be launching on Linux early next year, with full Steam Controller and Big Picture support to be added as soon as Valve gets us a controller dev kit. Pick up a copy of the game this weekend while it’s 25% off and you'll be able to play the Linux version as soon as it launches!"
