X4: Foundations without beta version for Linux

X4 Capture

X4: Foundations is a good space simulator developed by Egosoft. It was released a few days ago for Windows, and although there was originally talk of a beta version for Linux on the day of its launch, unfortunately it has not arrived. It seems that it has been delayed even more than expected and that it may be due to certain problems with the resources to manage the entire launch and they do not dedicate time for the port that this video game studio is creating. Undoubtedly a shame, because the title promises a lot, you just have to watch the videos that circulate about the video game ...

The developer's official forum is talking about it. One of the developers said: «I'm afraid we are very focused on getting the initial launch completed successfully and have not planned in detail exactly when we will start. Linux beta version. As I said in my answer above, bear with us as the dust settles and we get a clearer idea of ​​when we can spend more time preparing it. Given that information, you can assume that it is now fairly certain that it will not be a reality on the same day that Windows is launched.«.

The good news is that they still seem to be very interested in the Linux version, and that it will very likely arrive in the coming months. But now will allocate resources (time and staff) to see how the launch of Windows goes and that everything is OK for the first users who will be able to enjoy it. After that they will work on the beta for Linux and I hope I can break the news of the final release next year.

At the moment you have to be content with waiting and this type of news, because if you do not have a Windows computer, you will not be able to access X4: Foundations in stores Valve's Humble Store, GOG and Steam where it is already available for download ...
