Steam Linux Gaming To Hit 1,700 Games

This forthcoming week will surely mark 1,700 Linux games being able natively via Steam.

At the moment of writing, there's been 1,699 games available for Linux and the Debian-based SteamOS. By later this week if not tomorrow, that will cross the 1,700 milestone!

We've been seeing almost 100 new Steam Linux games released per month, but that changed since the 1,600 milestone with Valve no longer listing some games that carried external dependencies outside of the Steam Runtime and other barriers.

These nearly 1,700 Steam Linux games have all come in just over three years since Valve rolled out their Steam Linux beta. This is all while the Steam Survey shows Linux at under 1%.
