Feral Interactive just announced via Twitter that F1 2015 will be released for Linux this week.

This Formula One racing game will be released for Linux on Thursday, 26 May. This racing game retails for $55 USD via the Steam Store. It's described as, "Race like a champion in F1 2015 A stunning new game engine and all-new ‘broadcast presentation’ puts you in the heart of the action."

F1 2015 was developed by Codemasters and runs on the EGO Engine 4.0. The game was released last July for Windows / PlayStation 4 / Xbox One to mixed reviews.

The Feral mini site lists the rather stiff requirements for this racing game: a GeForce 970 is what's recommended for the Linux version of this game, using the proprietary NVIDIA driver. The minimum requirement for this game is a GeForce GT 640, also using the proprietary driver. No mention of any AMD Radeon support for launch-time nor about using Mesa drivers.
