The games also due to launch on Mac and Windows PC. Hence the full 1.0 debut coming on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019. A PlayStation 4 release will arrive in Q4 2019. So where does that leave Linux?
At launch, on Steam, we will only support PC/Mac for The Forbidden Arts. But we do intend to support Linux. Right now our priority is to get through the launch for Steam(PC/Mac), Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Then we will continue and finish the PlayStation 4 port. Followed by Windows 10 UWP and Linux for Steam.
Since this does not state a release date for The Forbidden Arts. It’s a pleasure to see Linux is in the roadmap. But Stingbot also state that they have a bit of work to do. But feel it best to release on some of the platforms now. While avoiding a delay for the entire release as a whole.
