Creative Assembly have confirmed, after saying it “wouldn’t be difficult at all” to adapt their game to the Steam Controller, that it will, in fact, be coming to the Steam Controller — and the Linux-based operating system that accompanies it.
The company’s Rob Bartholomew said on Steam that “We’ve always wanted the Total War franchise to be enjoyed by living room gamers, but the limitations of traditional hardware made our style of game play impossible.”
“Last month, when Valve invited us to test out the new Steam Controller and unveiled their plans for SteamOS – we were impressed. We believe it will provide us with the control fidelity and platform we need to make a living room experience for ROME II that could be a more compelling experience than playing with keyboard and mouse”
Bartholomew confirmed a launch window of “early next year”, and said that full Steam Controller and Big Picture support were coming “as soon as Valve gets us a controller dev kit”.
