Ashes of the Singularity [Steam] is aiming to have Vulkan support in August, which paves the way for Linux support in future.
On Steam, a developer replied to GOL follower Fabry's question about Vulkan support with "Most likely August.". While that isn't Linux news, we do already know that Linux support depends on Ashes having Vulkan support first, since they won't do OpenGL.
As of right now, the Linux support request post on Steam, that was created by the CEO of Stardock has 753 replies, which is a very good sign. There's actually more requests for a Linux port than the game has in total reviews.
They are planning to put up a new roadmap soon, so we might be surprised to see Linux now firmly in their sights.
I am really hopeful on this one, especially since proper RTS games are easily my favourite genre. I was a massive player of Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander, so this looks exactly like what I miss on Linux. I would be extremely happy if it came to our platform.
Please note: I fully recommend waiting until they actually put out a Linux version to buy it, don't be daft by buying it now if they decide not to port it.
Thanks for the tip Fabry.
