Since this is aa tactical role-playing game developed by Subset Games, consisting of Justin Ma and Matthew Davis. This is also the studio’s second game, following FTL: Faster Than Light. It features writing by Chris Avellone and music composed by Ben Prunty. It was initially releasing on Windows on February 27, 2018, with Linux and Mac versions to follow.

What platforms will it be on?

Into the Breach will be on Windows, Mac, and Linux. But it will not release on all three simultaneously. As a small studio, we found managing that large of a release for FTL very difficult, so we’re going to spread it out more this time.

Another games coming to Linux you might want to keep an eye on, Phoning Home.
