Alien Isolation Has Been Delayed For Linux

If you woke up this morning expecting to play Alien: Isolation with today being the expected release date for OS X and Linux, Feral Interactive has unfortunately had to push back the release.

In a brief news posting, Feral explains that the Linux/Mac release "has been delayed due to an issue that affects both platforms, and will not be released today. We are committed to releasing games only once they reach our high standards."

Feral will provide a new release date soon. We've been looking forward to Alien Isolation on Linux even though the game is initially just endorsed for NVIDIA graphics.

As it looks like Alien Isolation has a built-in benchmarking mode, once the game is released you can expect many Linux performance tests to appear on Phoronix.
