News has been #released that #Sony will be handling the PC release for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, which has been a rumour for quite some time. Now details have been officially confirmed, finally. The eerie Shropshire set walking simulator will launch on #Steam in the near future, with no word on a release date just yet.
Needless to say, we reached out to The Chinese Room to see whether a Linux release is in place, similar to A Machine for Pigs. And seeing Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is developed using CryEngine.
Here is what The Chinese Room had to say, “the current plans are to release the game on Windows only, the game uses an older version of CryEngine, so porting it to Linux wouldn’t have been as easy as it may be in the more current versions of Crytek’s engine.
Sony, our publisher, may decide to offer support for more operating systems in the future (such as OSX or Linux), but that’s unfortunately a decision that’s out of our hands.”
Total Dark is the next game from the developer which will also launch on PC as well. No real details have been released about the game yet. Hopefully we will see Linux support here.
However, that being said, hopefully with enough demand from the community we will see a Linux release for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Making now the best time to Tweet at @SonySantaMonica directly.
