    Hmm, this puzzles me that you dare say so after screenshots I posted.

      though i'd be delighted if it was released on gog.
      I would love for that to happen as well but GOG still doesn't support Linux unfortunately.

      GOG does so much more these days. Go have a look!

        I agree it runs great, I don't think it's a port however. The Main developer said he develops the game on Ubuntu for all platforms, hence the Linux version exists. He even said it isn't stable and is buggy.

          Classic game are no longer their focus, but since they enforce no DRM and same price for everyone, they tend to have harder time getting new game for distribution. But if they get a game available I buy from them, except if available through Humble Bundle (has Humble Bundle distributed game, even if not part of the Humble Indie Bundle, usually are DRM free, have Linux support, along having a steam code).

          CD Projekt (parent company of GOG) show interest in supporting Linux, if it is indeed in their plan to support Linux, knowing them they will bring it out with a bang (has they actually know how to use the internet has a free marketing tool), thus Witcher 3 release, which should be officially announced on the 5th, would be a good bet has the game to launch GOG Linux support.

            I'd absolutely love to see it happening but given how heavy (one of the few PC games not designed for 6 year old technology, and not looking like it was) Witcher 2 was I can't imagine its successor playing nice under Linux.

            That being said RED Engine was supposedly native OpenGL under OSX.

              I don't quite understand you, are you suggesting that Linux can't handle graphically intense games?

                The whole driver situation will turn it into a royal PITA for CDP and given their size (while big they hardly have the recourses EA/Ubi/Activision do) I couldn't fault them I they didn't try. Witcher 2's approach to technology was so different it felt a bit like the Crysis of its time.

                  Ok cool. I believe what you say. The videos of the game just gave quite different 'yet another rubbish RTS' image.

                  Will have to buy it once it is released on GNU/Linux.

                  I hope I stand corrected.

                    Besides some obvious bugs they need to squash (which you can read in their Linux bug reporting thread on that forum), when I fired up Wargame:EE it felt like I had just fired up a new game in a typical Windows gaming PC; the game ran without any complaints and was just smooth everywhere and I haven't seen any visual glitches.
                    I guess what I mean to say is it actually feels native rather than some half-assed port.

                      I do hope you are right as that sounds like the optimal scenario. Can you link me to where CD Projekt showed interest in supporting Linux? Introducing Linux support at the same time as launching The Witcher 3 (its launch hopefully including a Linux client) sounds great but what about Cyberpunk 2077 which is another title they are currently developing? What about The Witcher and The Witcher 2? GOG did not launch support for Mac OS with any new, major unreleased games either so it worries me.
