Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia has a release date, so this is and update for Linux. The games currently only set for a Windows release. Therefore we want to present some details about native support.
So for those who do not know. Developer Creative Assembly has a couple of Total War games on Linux. Which means Total War: WARHAMMER, Total War: ATTILA and Total War: Shogun 2 to name a couple. While Total War: ATTILA was ported in house. And the rest via help from Feral Interactive.
We reached out to SEGA, hoping for some Linux confirmation. As it turns out, “we only have a release on Windows in our current plan.” When it comes to game engine, “Thrones of Britannia will be based on the Total War: ATTILA codebase. Although not without some changes. So we can make the game run as smoothly as possible.”
Since Total War: ATTILA does have a native Linux release. This is not a confirmation for Thrones of Britannia . Even the FAQ only states Windows support for the release. While some Linux interest via Steam Discussions for support. So at this time, there is NO confirmation.
