The Linux Dev Lead at Feral Interactive is moving onto something new

Posted by , | Views: 10,676

Slightly sad news to share today, as the Linux Dev Lead at Feral Interactive who've ported tons of quality games to Linux is leaving the company.

Announcing their departure on Twitter, they said this:

Tomorrow will be my last day at Feral. I've been taken on such a damn amazing ride: ~5 years now, most of that as the Linux lead, helping ship 20+ AAA Linux titles, and making just as many great friends along the way.

Much love and thanks, Feral, you'll never lose this fan <3

They also made it clear, that the Linux developers at Feral Interactive are being left in "superbly capable hands" so no need to worry about them suddenly stopping Linux porting work.

I spoke privately with Marc, just to ask a few friendly questions to not take up much of their free time:

Q: You helped port 20+ AAA games to Linux with your time at Feral, looking back on it, what was your favourite to work on and why?

Rise of the Tomb Raider, for sure. I just love that game and series!

Q: If you could go out there right now and work for a company to bring a game to Linux, what would it be?

I'd aim bigger and work somewhere bringing more than just one game to Linux

Q: Will you be sticking around the community?

Hell yes

Q: How are you so good at Rocket League and when can you train me? Seriously, you’re a monster. (Marc won one of our recent tournaments)

Give a man 1000 hours at anything and you'll find them still only Diamond 3

I want to wish Marc all the best, it's been great to have you around answering questions in our comments, joining in community games with us and so on. It hasn't always been easy, but you've been a star for Linux gaming.

I'm sure wherever he ends up he will be doing some awesome work.

Both Tomb Raider episodes are for me the best of the best of Linux gaming (fingers crossed that part 3 is also coming to Linux at some point)!
Thanks for all your work and all the best for your future path!

Good luck with the new job.

Time for some amusing comments:

Maybe off to join CD Projekt Red - Finally The Witcher 3!!! Also... Cyberpunk 2077 .... spooge!

More likely, poached by Square Enix ... and if that the case, I guess yet more of their titles coming to Linux. (Shadow of the Tomb Raider ).

Finally, as someone has already suggested, maybe working in the heart of Valve, bringing new Valve titles to the masses!

Please, please tell me he's joining Electronic Arts to make a day one Linux version of the Battlefield game coming this fall

Will be interesting to see where he ends up working.

Thanks for all the work on bringing high quality AAA ports to us, Marc. Wish you all the best!
