Quoting: LinuxwarperBut I don't think it will help Linux platform or CDPR being part of the platform if we keep grudges.

It's not about holding a grudge, but setting realistic expectations - the twitter thing you posted in two years old. In the mean time they made a new "Galaxy 2.0" - for Windows & Mac, not Linux

If during a complete redesign they didn't think to include Linux in that process it's not comming, simple as that.

Undoubtedly cyberpunk will run on proton, but given how hardware demanding it is on even the primary supported platform I doubt it will be a pleasant experience for the majority of Linux users

Quoting: LinuxwarperThey seem to have adressed that issue quite well if you ask me, giving out refunds.

Unfortunately that statement probably wasn't made in good faith; because it has since come out that Sony, M$ & the various retailers have no idea how to process the refunds, so they're rejecting the claims.

I think it's in pretty good faith. Just bad bueareucracy. Now if thier own store were rejecting it, I would totally agree with you.

I don't think the dev can really help much if a given retailer is incompetent

Their own store isn't selling the base console versions, though; which is the core of the issue.

The retailer's incompetence might not be relevant either; without clear instructions from cdpr that would override their regular return policies, I don't think the retailers can do anything — they can't act on a twitter post.

I don't think expecting anything from this company is realistic. They are a huge publicly traded company, and they also got a grant from the polish government to develop their tech for this game. If with all these financial resources they couldn't think to use a standard technology (vulkan) over a non-standard one, and had to contract an outside dev to develop them for stadia (as i understand, maybe not), it's just a pipe drean that they will give any gestures to free platforms.

Giving them money because maybe eventually hopefully Valve or Codeweavers patch wine up enough so this thing runs without a power plant is a waste of money imo. (not even mentioning how the 60 eur price is outrageous even for games that DO work.)

Do we know if RedEngine is planned to get Vulkan support?

I agree with you completely there. But establishing that process takes time, if the retailer is even willing to to participate.

Hopefully they fix the game or make it right for users.
