Gaming on Linux is not a myth, not anymore.
Feral Interactive teased about a big announcement on Twitter yesterday.
So maybe we'll announce a massive game for Mac and Linux tomorrow. Should we? Could be fun.

That left many people guessing about what it could be. In a discussion in Linux Users Group on Facebook, some readers even hoped that it could be GTA 5.
But no, it’s not GTA 5 but it is still a big announcement. Feral Interactive is bringing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to Linux and Mac OS later this year. Their Twitter announcement generated quite a buzz.

On their website, they have put up this message:
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is coming to Mac using Apple’s Metal graphics API, delivering Deus Ex onto the OS in spectacularly polished form. Linux is in on the action too as the series comes to the platform for the first time ever.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the sixth games in Deus Ex games series. All games are set in a futuristic, dystopian, cyberpunk society. You can watch the trailer of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to understand more about its storyline.
Deus Ex: Makind Divided is one of the most popular games of this year. IGN gave it 9.2 out of 10 and GamesRadar+ has listed it as one of the best games in 2016. Considering such high praises and popularity, it is indeed a big deal that this game is coming to Linux.
Do you play games on Linux desktop? What is your favorite game? Will you be playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided when it comes to Linux?
