After waiting and hoping for a long time, it seems the light is finally at the end of the tunnel for the patch to enable cross-platform play for Linux players of Civilization VI.
We’ve covered it numerous times, so we won’t go over everything again. Instead, let’s cut right to the chase.
We spoke to Aspyr Media privately, who said the patch to enable cross-platform online play should hopefully arrive for Linux gamers “before Christmas” regardless of them solving the issue with Intel i3 processors or not, which has been holding it up.
On top of that, we spoke about the recently announced Gathering Storm expansion which releases for Windows in February next year. Aspyr said they’re “confident” the Linux release will be “soon after the Windows release”.
Delays happen, sometimes they’re way longer than they should have been but it should all be sorted soon. Hopefully this time next month, you will be able to happily dive into a game of Civilization VI with your Windows and Mac friends.
