We've known for a while that the massive and popular RPG Path of Exile was going to get a Vulkan API implementation and they would have liked to do Linux support, seems like they're continuing that line of thinking.
In a new interview done by YouTuber Zizaran, they were testing out some upcoming content and changes coming with the recently announced Path of Exile 2. While doing this they were joined by Chris Wilson from Path of Exile developer Grinding Gear Games to answer some questions.
When talking about their plans, Wilson mentioned: "We realised that if we did a port to Vulkan, which is a renderer that is used on phones and various other stuff, we get Mac support, we get Linux support, we get support for things like Google Stadia and so on - it was just worthwhile to do a Vulkan port. So we started that, because it's going to be good for Path of Exile players.".
If you're interested, you can see the full video below with the Linux mention starting around 6:40.
It's really great to see that Grinding Gear Games continue keeping a port to Linux in mind, while it's not confirmation it's clear they are thinking about it and porting their game to Vulkan makes that possibility a lot closer to reality.
With Path of Exile 2 due out late next year, we should hopefully hear more closer to then. You can find out more about Path of Exile 2 here.
