No it wont.
As for the reason why it shows up is that we are simply to broke to pay few thousands each year to Microsoft for proper certification of our installer software.

Just google "FAForever Virus" and you will get multiple results from many years.
Almost every result shows the same; Its a false positive.

So no, this will not harm your PC.

Insider note:
The filehoster where we store all FAF files scans each file for viruses and would delete any malicious file immediately.
So even if we would mess this up, you can not download a infected file from this hoster. (Hetzner.de)

No, it is not malicious or a virus.


Stick with the official source for any downloads:

https://www.faforever.com/client

Or if you are a developer or a more tech-savvy type, you can check the source code:

https://github.com/FAForever/downlords-faf-client
