I can't promise you that yet, but it's in the plans

So being that Nantucket is using the Unity game engine. This should make it easier for the studio to create a native port. That being said, the games release is brand new. So this means that bugs and other tweaks are being worked on.
Also, Picaresque Studio have yet to issue a time frame for the release. So this will be a wait and see.
Also confirmed, Nantucket works via PlayOnLinux using Wine Staging 2.15
