Foxhole is the massively multiplayer game for Windows, but also coming to Linux via Steam. We reached out to Toronto based developer Clapfoot. The games native port will likely happen, but later. Since the games developed in Unreal Engine 4. This should mean an automatic port, right?
Well that’s not the case, since Foxhole released on Early Access via Steam summer 2017. And the games in a continued state of development.
Foxhole Linux port?
“Unfortunately no Linux support yet. If I have to be upfront about things.. I really don’t see Linux support happening until at least we get to Foxhole 1.0 which is at least half a year away (likely more).”
Since this is some positive news. Developer Clapfoot also points out that “there’s no guarantee” a Linux release will happen.
While the demand on the Discussions seem to say otherwise. Therefore if Clapfoot avoid issuing a Linux release, they will miss a significant market.
