CRYENGINE from Crytek Announces Official Linux Support Ahead Of GDC

By - | Views: 45,561
CRYENGINE one of the most advanced game engines around powering a ton of games has finally announced official Linux support, so Crytek how about some Crysis on Linux?

More likely is that we could see their free online FPS "Warface" get ported, as that is what they are focusing on right now (apart from Mobile).

QuoteDuring presentations and hands-on demos at Crytek's GDC booth, attendees can see for the first time ever full native Linux support in the new CRYENGINE.


Oh man, it has NEVER been a better time to be a Linux gamer.

I shall pass the cake and hats around, you will find me drunk in a corner somewhere celebrating. Article taken from

It would have been surprising had they announced this before Kickstarter projects popped up indicating this was very much an inevitability. It's still exciting, though.

This is great news. Fingers crossed for some big AAA titles using the engine and getting a simultaneous Linux release. Fantastic!

At the very least this should mean Kingdom Come will come through with their promise. Good news :D

I really hope that the Free SDK will also see native Linux support, it's important.

Quoting: MadsThe Far Cry series hasn't used CRYENGINE since Crytek sold the franchise to Ubisoft. But Kingdom Come is using CRYENGINE and Warhorse announced from the start of their Kickstarter that the game would be coming to Linux as well.

that dont means nothing, not all companies do their own game engines.
Far cry is made with Cry Engine even after Ubisoft.

I hope Crysis 2 and 3 will come to Linux.

Plus, hands-on demos! That's a vote of confidence for their Linux performance.
