Understanding how linux fits in

i use linux. i’d like to make and run games on linux. at https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine i read “build the Unreal Editor for Windows, Mac and Linux, compile Unreal Engine games for Android, iOS, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and HTML5”.

does that mean we can make games on linux, but those games can’t be run and played on linux? if they can be, can both game clients and servers be run on linux or?

Yes, you can make the game on a Linux machine, and you can package the finished game to run on Linux. I think they phrased it that way because you can’t run the Editor on Android, iOS, PS4, XBox One or HTML5, and they wanted to show that you can packaged those games on Linux, Windows, etc.
