New World Interactive held a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) earlier this week for Insurgency: Sandstorm and naturally there was a query concerning the upcoming Linux model which they answered.

Originally, they mentioned they had been hoping Linux model of Sandstorm would come within the first few updates. Sadly, that didn't occur and we've been left ready whereas they enhance numerous features of the sport. A standard grievance appears to be efficiency, with a number of posts and opinions speaking about it needing to be improved.

Anyway, right here's what they said in full within the AMA yesterday:

While we’re dedicated to releasing native Mac Os and Linux variations of Insurgency: Sandstorm sooner or later, proper now our staff are primarily targeted on our close to time period objectives of general higher efficiency, new options, and the console variations. We ought to have the ability to give a greater timeline on once we will begin on the native Mac / Linux variations later within the yr. – Jon

It's probably not completely different to solutions they've given extra not too long ago, even so it's good that they declare to stay dedicated to truly doing it. It's a recreation that comes up in dialog quite a bit in our Discord, so hopefully this assertion will allay any fears about it now not occurring.

I'm an enormous FPS shooter fan, particularly the marginally slower and extra tactical video games like this that's much less about wall-jumping and twitchy insanity. What's fascinating, is that the earlier Insurgency recreation which is on Linux (Steam) nonetheless manages to have common gamers and infrequently larger than Sandstorm. Not shocking although, since they did a give away not too way back however the truth that it's conserving the next variety of gamers should imply Sandstorm actually does want some enhancements. Hopefully by the point it arrives on Linux, it is going to be in a great state.

You can comply with it on Steam.
