In a recent 'meet the team' blog post interview, David Kaye the Lead System Engineer at Crytek talked a little about his role and how improved Linux support is coming.
CRYENGINE, the other major game engine is adding in Vulkan support in their 5.3 release due in October.
The CRYENGINE source code is now officially available on github for anyone to take a look and tinker with, you need to be aware of their licensing though.
Thanks as usual to SteamDB, it looks like the Linux/SteamOS and Mac ports of Evolve might still be happening.
SNOW is incredibly interesting, mainly as it's our first proper winter sports type game to have on Linux & SteamOS, it's a bit buggy though. It's free, so no big loss right now if it's a bit iffy.
Today is already a good day, you can now add CRYENGINE to the official list of game engines that support Linux, so here's to hoping more games can come over.
As part of their an EULA update, CryTek have today announced that the next release of CryEngine 3 will feature an OpenGL renderer and Linux support.
In a very recent video from Star Citizen's Chris Roberts, he outlines what's going on with the Linux version, and sadly the news right now isn't too healthy.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance, A CryEngine Game Linux Version Still Happening, Not Due Until After Windows
Kingdom Come: Deliverance does sound like it will be amazing, but sadly the Linux version is far off, and will be quite a wait after the Windows version.
SNOW is an upcoming free to play, open world winter sports game that is going to use CryEngine and the developers sent a little teaser out.
So, that's more bad news for our hopes of having the new Homefront: The Revolution not only be on Linux, but ever seeing the light of day. The director has now left.
Do not adjust your screen that is a real headline. Crytek's CRYENGINE Powered Homefront The Revolution has been announced with full Linux support.
Crossing The Line is an in-development first-person shooter built with CryEngine that will come to Linux. From the new developer Zomboko Entertainment.
Star Citizen is a game you cannot help but get excited over. A new video has surfaced from PAX where parts of the game where shown off and it doesn't disappoint.
So, we do know that Star Citizen will come to Linux thanks to CryEngine being on Linux. I have just found a video of the Star Citizen team getting ready for PAX and an interesting operating system is in the background.
Something Linux gamers have been requesting time and time again is going to happen! Star Citizen is heading to Linux Chris Roberts stated at a panel at PAX.
