This is quite sad, it seems we have been left wondering for a while (years) about Subnautica, but a developer has now confirmed a Linux version is not being worked on.
I personally wrote about Subnautica back in 2013 where I was told:
QuoteWin/Linux/Mac are first priorities
QuoteI would say... 90% :) We're using Unity, so unless we run into show-stoppers, i'd say Linux is go!
I tweeted to them a few times over the years since then to no reply, so it is good to get some closure.
Earlier, I was tagged in a twitter post from another user which a developer claimed they had never promised a Linux version. Considering their earlier remarks, it stuck me as rather odd as it was a first priority platform around three years ago. So I reached out to find what happened.
Luckily that developer was still online and has now clarified what happened (click here for the full twitter conversation). Essentially, even though it's using Unity it is not as easy as clicking a button and they are focusing on Windows and Mac.
Sad, but we've seen this many times now.
