It seems Stardock Entertainment are continuing to work on their Linux port of Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation. As a big fan of real-time strategy games, I'm still quite excited to try it out.
In their April 2019 update post, Stardock CEO Brad Wardell posted this:
## Linux ##
So now that GDC is over, I can't really go into much detail but it should be more obvious now why we've been taking Linux support more seriously in all our games. The continued issue is just working with the driver makers to make sure their Vulkan drivers are able to handle what we need them to do. I don't have an ETA on this but we will likely bite the bullet and put out a Linux beta even with the performance challenges (those with high end systems may not have an issue).
When Wardell says it should be more obvious now, they're talking about Google's Stadia which they previously hinted at knowing about, as they said there was a lot of "industry interest in Linux". This latest post was made at the start of April, so considering they're coming up on their next monthly report we might see it on Linux in some rough form soon.
It will be interesting to see if any other developer uses the Linux desktop, as a sort-of testing area for a future Stadia release. That could end up benefiting us quite a lot but I'm not keeping my fingers crossed too tightly on that point.
Hat tip to Jan.
